The guide for the unlucky pop ups

Guide for the unlucky pop ups book

Thanks to Kyle Bean, he’s created The Guide for the Unlucky. Each page contains a description and a pop up 3D element .

Halloween accounts for 75% of the annual candy corn production
A cup of candy corn has fewer calories than a cup of raisins.
Candy Corn was invented by George Renninger and produced by the Wunderlee Candy Company in the 1880's. In 1900, the Goelitz Candy Company, now Jelly Belly Candy Company, started mass producing the candy, but, due to the lack of machinery, it was only made available seasonally from March to November. Its recipe has remained unchanged.
