My only beef with this book is that the illustrations are all line drawings that look like they were mimeographed sometime in the mid 1980s. I would love to see this book re-issued with crisp computer drawn illustrations, ala Kieth Smith's bookbinding books.
I would definitely recommend this book for the more advanced paper folder. A good book to start with is Elements of Pop-Up by Carter/Diaz before getting this one.
As long as the content itself, Duncan Birmingham it's an excellent teacher, really clear and thorough.
I strongly recommend this book if you want to get serious on pop-ups.
What I especially like about it is, the many simple sketches of the pieces and how they are applied particularly in the more complex figures, where clarity is needed and often times not as well done in other books on the subject. I have bought more than one to give to friends that work in this area as well.
One of the best books on the subject.
