Pop-Up Design and Paper Mechanics

This comprehensive guide to pop-up is a delightful introduction to the fun, surprising and intriguing aspects of a fascinating craft. Duncan Birmingham’s totally new and accessible approach to pop-up theory and practice distils the numerous mechanisms into a logical set of underlying shapes, and the techniques for building these shapes is methodically explained with step-by-step pictures and text. No measuring is necessary and only card, scissors and glue are needed to make highly complex folding sculptures. He demonstrates how sophisticated pop-up designs are constructed and shows how to form a 3D reference book, invaluable for professional and amateur designers interested in this craft.
