The Practical Step-by-step Guide to Making Pop-ups & Novelty Cards a How-to Guide to the Art of Paper Engineering, Featuring Over 100 Techniques and Projects Shown in 1000 Fantastic Photographs and Il by Trish Phillips, Ann R. Montanaro

Pop-ups are ingenious mechanical paper devices designed to surprise, entertain and educate. This fantastic new book begins with an exploration of the history of pop-ups by expert Ann Montanaro, charting their many uses over the centuries. Today pop-ups are seen in cards and children's story-books, in adult reference books, and as works of art in their own right. Following an informative section on materials and techniques, over 100 pop-up techniques and projects are shown step by step, with a photograph of each finished item to ensure perfect results every time. The projects are designed by paper engineer Trish Phillips and divided by their skill level. The projects are divided by skill level, and the techniques behind each are clearly illustrated and explained to allow you to use your skills to create new and unique designs.
