I found this book 10 years ago in a used-book store. Looked interesting, bought it, and the rest is history. Since then I've purchased every book I can find on this subject, including Mark's latest (Paper Engineering With Elastic Bands). I make my own greeting cards using Mark's first book as a guide. The recipients never fail to tell me the card is a "keeper!" I then branched out and made a book for my 4-year old niece. The other books in this category have given me inspiration but Mark's books are my primary reference.

This book is a real gem for teachers interested in acquainting children with the engineering principles of pop-ups both as an appreciation of pop-ups they enjoy and introduction into making their own. Well thought out directions and a place to store your samples for future reference are provided.

I teach paper engeneering in my 3-Dimensional Design class and have finally found a book with MECHANICAL systems. I have used Paul Jackson's "The Pop-Up Book" for classes for years but it lacked the levers and other mechanical movements found in Mark Hiner's "Paper Engeneering..." What we have typically done to understand mechanisms was to reverse engeneer our own collection of pop-up books but this has often destroyed our books! The quantity of designs in Mr. Hinner's book is a bit limited, and it DOES need the augmentation of actual pop-up books to see the variety of unique solutions to the same basic concepts.

This book is a very clear guide to paper engineering. It invites you to cut and assemble the examples that are given to demonstrate basic techniques. I can't bear to cut and paste my copy though. I'm buying a second one to practice on and keeping my original copy as a reference.

The book contains templates from which one is able to base designs, which is nice, however most of the designs were not exactly what I was wanting. Everything is kind of basic and "craftsy", whereas I was searching for something more art-oriented, more detailed and creative. Thankfully, I bought this with another, which exceeded all my expectations. The title of that book is The Pop-Up Book: Step-by-Step Instructions for Creating over 100 Original Paper Projects.

This book provides the basic engineering schematics for 10 types of pop-up and pop-out paper structures. It also includes the patterns to experience making them. It doesn't clutter up the process with the writer's suggestions for what to do with these basics; rather, it's up to you to use your imagination to create your own uses. Excellent book for an adult who wants to tackle this intriguing craft.

I teach a university level graduate course that explores this technology. Out of all of the paper-craft books I researched, this one stands alone because of the way it 'uncovers the secrets of the magician'. Truly sophisticated kinetic paper manipulation is a very complex affair, and this book lays out a 'working' example for each of the basic means of folding to create movement, sound, or dimension. Then by opening a flap to see behind the scenes, the mechanism that enables the movement is revealed, and can be examined and understood. I bring about 20 books into the classroom for students to use and this is the first one to go every time. Truly excellent content.

Very clear & accurate diagrams, ideas, & actual, working models that you can cut out & assemble (to give you a better idea of how pop-ups work) so that you can better design your very own. I looked at several other "how to make pop-ups" books, but I decided on this one & was very glad that I did because of its no-nonsense approach to just about every pop-up trick you can think of. I couldn't be happier with it :)!
