Here are a selection of Pop-Up Books online.
I went into Manchester - Waterstones, Magma - The Works even and there was such a limited selection of roughly 5 pop-up books in total. I was very disappointed - even Disney store had NO books at all?? Really surprised.
This looks a basic look at how you could create shapes and pop ups yourself.
I think this book is one of my earliest memories of a pop up book. We had one at primary school.
I think it was only allowed at the front entrance - you had to be supervised while looking at it. Probably wasn't classed as 'educational' - more fool them! Arts, crafts and uneducational books are the things that most prepared me for my working life - perhaps life in general!
Beautifully simple and elegant images and works of paper engineering.
The same author has done other books - a really great Dinosaur one! - http://www.amazon.co.uk/Encyclopedia-Prehistorica-Dinosaurs-Definitive-Pop-Up/dp/0763622281/ref=la_B001H6NSBY_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1382425464&sr=1-1
This is another, bright, bold and contemporary pop up book.
I think this might be my favourite one though - if in a different style from 2001.
These pages create a really believable and complete world. I think it comes back to the idea of miniatures and dolls houses - things are fascinating when in context with each other too.
The use of colour, shapes, strucutres of the paper and glittery things is just brilliant.
One last book that I had to include - or can you say it's a book..?
I just adore this idea and style of this book. It is exquisite. I bought a spooky house version from Berlin for my brother years ago (can't seem to find anything about that online) - with the book pulling round to create a 3D shape.
The rooms are just beautifully done, with such attention to details and small features.
The only pop-up book worth mentioning from my book trip out - and I can't find any pictures of it online. There is a really nice glood that is a sphere that pops up completely when you open the first page.

I'm looking at Pop-up book design as I want to look at how I can create shapes and structures that are foldable and easy to construct within the tent.
With a few simple folds, shapes and 3D structures can be created - perhaps this can be a technique I include within the tent space.
Another really nice site:
