Architecture books can be so dry. This one is anything but --The Daily Telegraph
Just gets better and better … the viaducts is amazing, it really does jump out at you from the page. … The Sagrada familia is a pièce de resistance. … The photographs are excellent and the paper engineering is magnificent. Who would not want a piece of Gaudí in their home? Now you can have several pieces all in one book. --Yarns and Fabrics

Born in 1852 to a humble family there was little in Gaudi's early life to indicate his greatness. In fact, when he graduated from the Barcelona Architure School the director said, "Who knows if we have given this diploma to a fool or to a genius. Time will tell." Time has definitely told and paper engineer Courtney Watson McCarthy has given life to some of Gaudi's most famous designs - words cannot do justice to these remarkable creations.
Included are 7 pop-ups and 16 illustrations, all in color. You'll find in addition to the unbelievable Sagrada Familia interior and exterior Ironwork from the Park Guell as well as the multi-colored Salamander also from the Park and more.
Almost a good as a trip to Barcelona Gaudi Pop-Ups is a joy to behold as well as paper engineering at its finest.
