Summary

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 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. The projects are divided by their skill level, beginning with basic pop-up mechanisms such as the V or A fold. Use these basic folds to make a classic Angel Christmas Card or a scary Wolf 's Head. Soon, you will be adding layers, wheels and tabs to produce more complicated designs such as a charming nest of Russian Dolls or a Magic Writing Pencil.
