There is POP UP in Andalan Books!


Among the hundreds of books displayed in Andalan, a pop up bookstore held on 8 – 24 September 2016, there is an magical magnet which attracted parents and children. Yes, right! The corner of pop up books,  belongs to Impian Studio. This corner particularly displays pop-up books works of Hafez Achda were sold out before the Andalan Books even end. Amazingly Impian Studio is not only sell their ready-made, but also showcased the steps to create a pop-up book. The working process of Hafez also showed  openly on the small table at this corner.  A fruitful addition by Hafez! He also made a pop up workshop for beginners.


Impian Studio is based in Yogyakarta, was founded by a couple Hafez Achda and Sulistyowati. Initially Impian Studio only do pop up based on the project, but eventually they were tired of working on orders another person / company. Eventually they make their own work. But once it turns pop up work has not got a place among publishers, so they both decided to publish it themselves under the banner of Impian Publishing. The first issue in 2015 with a circulation of 500 ex, sold 200 ex, the rest sold very slowly and accumulate. Learning from that experience, they set a strategy to develop the design and how to market it. And they share the task, Hafez focus on design and Lis parts of managerial and marketing. Currently Impian Publishing just published 150 copies of each title and plans to publish a new book each month. (Yustina Neni)
