Product Description

Here at last is the definitive book on the way to make a pop-up. Also included is a history of pop-ups in addition to a step-by-step photographic essay on how a pop-up is created from start to finish. All types of parallel folds, angle folds, wheels, and pull tabs are accurately detailed verbally and visually, flat and in dimension. Every aspect inside the creation of a pop-up, identified as paper engineering, is clearly and thoroughly covered. This guided tour is perfect for aspiring pop-up creators, paper engineers, students, and appreciators of this special art form.

Believe it or not, the first known pop-up element in a book appeared in an astrological manuscript in 1306. From tip-ons to dummies to glue knock-outs, each of the intricacies of pop-up production are outlined and explained. Now aspiring paper mechanics (creative engineer-artists who create dimensional and movable books, otherwise referred to as pop-ups) can learn the how-tos and wherefores of this marvelous craft. The rest, as they say, is history. During the ensuing centuries, movable mechanics had been used in much a lot more and a lot more books--but only for adults. In the 1700s a British bookseller came up with the notion of illustrating well-known children's stories with movable flaps of paper.

Readers are invited to take apart the sample pop-ups (provided that they promise to put them back together!) to figure out exactly how each score folds and where each glue point is. So blow the cobwebs out with all the geometry corner of your brain, and get to function! David Carter and James Diaz have each developed many, many pop-up books, and are passionate about their trade. Instructions are somewhat advanced, but the dimensional samples in addition to the step-by-step photographic essay on how a pop-up is created will ease the journey. (Ages 9 and older) --Emilie Coulter
