I was really excited about seeing this lecture because I really enjoy the art of pop books. I would say that this lecture was somewhat lukewarm as far as lectures go not because Sheeney's work wasn't interesting or that he wasn't pleasant to listen but that he decided to give a slow-paced history lesson and didn't show as much of his work as I thought he would. I did learn a lot about pop-up books and was surprised that it took almost 10 years to make just one by himself. I also enjoyed some of the other artists he mentioned such as Matthew Reinhart. I got the impression that he would be an even better speaker with smaller crowds where he'd be allowed more freedom and time to explain more of his own personal processes as opposed to teaching about the medium as a whole.
