A fascinating introduction to paper engineering, with 50 step-by-step folds and projects
Movable books have delighted adults and children alike for centuries. This book explores their history, describing how paper mechanisms, such as pop-ups, tabs, rotating wheels and flaps, have been used in greetings cards, books and advertising. Following an informative chapter on materials and techniques, there are 50 folds and projects to try. They are all shown step by step, with plenty of photographs showing all the stages. Learn basic folds, such as a beak fold, floating layers and slot technique, then use these skills to create delightful pop-ups such as a birthday cake, monkeys in a tree, or swan and cygnets. A gallery of works by pop-up artists is also included.
