A fully illustrated step-by-step manual exploring techniques and principles of design – learn how to build pop-ups and the basic skills of paper engineering. This comprehensive guide will appeal to all craft enthusiasts, it is also a great aid for designers and illustrators thinking of working with paper engineering.

Beginning with the basics such as V-Folds and Parallel Folds – the essential structures of many pop-ups – it then explores ways to create more complex mechanisms, such as pull-tabs, pivots, wheels and dissolving windows.

This hands-on approach provides a grounding before moving on to show how to add dynamic structures and height to creative designs.

Pop-ups mounted in the book can be kept for reference and show how readers can incorporate their newfound knowledge and create a design. The book ends with step-by-step projects to make for yourself.
