"Most of the examples focus on grown-up uses for popupseffective presentations and so onbut it's really easy to see how you could use this with kids (or friends) to make wicked-cool art." BoingBoing.net
This book is the first of three volumes that will be published on the art of "paper engineering" or how to make pop-ups. It introduces the subject by describing how pop-ups move, and what tools and materials are needed for their creation. Readers who have limited 3-dimensional design experience will appreciate the interactive, hands-on approach adapted by the author, who has taught the subject to people of all ages. Starting with the simplest cut-and-fold box and triangle forms, each project builds on the prior one in developing a knowledge base of pop-up formats. The book is filled with full-color photos of finished projects, sample ideas, and drawings of each step of the construction process. The book is hard-bound, with a matte varnish on the cover that resists dirt and moisture, and an inner spiral binding that allows the book to lie open flat while in use as an instruction manual.See all Editorial Reviews
My students love hands-on activities and the step-by-step instructions to build techniques to construct interactive notebook pages.Published 3 months ago by alwaysthankful
Otherwise perfect, the "new" condition book had an impossible to remove white sticker on the front cover.Published 3 months ago by dianeb
A nice book on learning the basics of making pop-ups. Easy to follow, and fun to look at.Published 4 months ago by My Penny's Worth
This is the first book in the series of three. Like book 2, it is easy to understand how to make each folded project. I am glad to have this book in my crafts library.Published 18 months ago by Jane Woodard
It is a good start for learning to make pop-up books and simple movements in books like moving parts like eyes or arms, wheels, etc.Published on August 27, 2013 by Tommy B. Roberts
Each exercise builds logically on the previous one. Explanations work. I haven't done all the samples, so I'll comment more when I do.Published on July 17, 2013 by I. Labrant
