This second volume of THE POCKET PAPER ENGINEER promises to be another hit with both children and adults who want to learn more about the craft of making pop-up cards and pages. Written in clear, simple language and generously illustrated with 91 full-color photographs and over 100 instructional drawings, the book is easily accessible to the novice paper engineer at the same time it offers design tips and ideas to the professional graphic artist and designer. The book's hardcover case is protected with a matte varnish that resists moisture and dirt, and the inner wire-O binding allows the book to lie flat while the reader progresses through the step-by-step directions for the projects. Each of the book's ten interactive projects introduces a basic principle of pop-up paper construction. The project pages can be pulled directly from the book, then cut and assembled with a pair of scissors and a glue stick. Information on tools, formats, adhesives, and web resources are also included.See all Editorial Reviews

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
and somewhat limited in content. But what it does cover, it covers well. I bought the whole series, because I collect books on how to make Pop-ups, but I would probably not have... Read morePublished on May 18, 2013 by Kathy M. Berger
