Congratulations to Lorraine who entered here on the blog and to

For all you pop-up fans, I have something special to introduce today. Well-respected paper engineers Robert Sabuda and Chuck Fischer have joined their talents and admiration of iconic buildings to create LegacyPop, a new stationery venture.
Chuck wrote to me to explain that he and Robert love architecture (as well as paper and paper pop-ups), especially historic architecture, and have launched a line of intricately detailed, laser-cut pop-up cards and special edition, large format pop-ups of the world's greatest structures.
"This past summer, while talking about our work and what kind of projects we'd like to work on in the future, we discovered we both were thinking about starting a company with a focus on architectural pop-up cards and bespoke, one-of-a-kind, 3D pop-ups of private homes. We immediately decided to join forces and start creating 3D prototypes to launch a crowd-funding campaign."
"LegacyPop combines artistry with laser technology to take the art of pop-up design to a new level of sophistication and style. Our creations will surprise and delight every time you open a LegacyPop card or Special Edition pop-up."
Special Edition - Round Hill Farm

The Indiegogo campaign has been successfully funded, but because it is an In Demand campaign, it is still active. All of the available PERKS listed on the LegacyPop page are available.
In addition to historic buildings, such as Highclere Castle of Downton Abbey fame, Monticello, Thomas Jefferson's home, and colleges and university buildings, Chuck and Robert welcome the challenge of creating an architectural pop-up of your own home, garden, fraternity or sorority house, or historic property.
Each Special Edition Pop-Up includes a giclee print of an original painting by Chuck Fischer.
Now about the international giveaway! Two winners will each receive two signed First Edition LegacyPop Cards - (1) Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello and (2) Highclere Castle (Downton Abbey) and an 8 x 10-inch Digital Print of Chuck Fisher's original painting of each of the buildings.
