5.0 out of 5 stars Superb introduction and reference book, 9 Mar. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Pop-Up Design and Paper Mechanics (Paperback)
Duncan Birmingham has put together a "must buy" for anyone interested in the mechanics of pop-up paper engineering. His book takes you step by step through the 18 basic pop-up mechanisms then progresses to more and more complex designs. The illustrations usually explain things very clearly. The occasional ambiguity is resolved by simply making the structure described and following the descriptions with care.
This really is the biggest joy of the book. All you need are some thin card, scissors and glue. You don't just look at the book, you get stuck in (pun intended!) cutting out the shapes, folding and assembling them. No detailed measuring is required. In next to no time you'll have amazed yourself with your portfolio of pop-ups. If you have an artistic bent there are no limits to where you can carry on from the fundamental knowledge this great book will teach you.
