The magical qualities of three-dimensional and moving books have universal appeal, and this book offers a clear and practical guide to the craft for all levels of artist, from the home hobbyists to professional graphic designers and architects. Starting with the most basic techniques, the book progresses as a teaching course through one-piece and then multi-piece designs, covering everything the reader will need to become a master of pop-ups. Detailed descriptions, step-by-step photography and artworks, and further examples for experimentation accompany each technique. A second section on design then explains how to adapt and combine these various techniques for use with different subjects. The range of possibilities is endless, and an inspiring gallery of designs created by professionals, amateurs and students displays the fantastic versatility of paper pop-ups, providing a source for further ideas. Written by paper engineer Paul Jackson, and illustrated with over 500 colour photographs and artworks, this is a comprehensive teaching course for all levels of artist and a visual sourcebook of the best contemporary work in the art of pop-up and paper engineering.
