About the Author
Courtney Watson McCarthy is a paper engineer and graphic designer. With a degree in theatrical scenic design, she has worked as a model builder and designer in a variety of fields before discovering the magic of movable books. From the time she dissected her first pop-up book, determined to solve the riddle of how it worked, she was hooked. After experimenting with cards and other small projects, she went on to design and engineer Eye Magic, M.C. Escher Pop-Ups, New York Times acclaimed Gaudi Pop-Ups, Pop-Up Numbers, and Dali Pop-Ups. She lives in the Hudson Valley with her husband and two daughters.

I was not disappointed, the incredibly inventive paper engineering of Courtney Watson McCarthy really does bring Escher's art to life, my particular favourite in this collection being Bond of Union. The quality of both the paper engineering and the images themselves are first rate and I would recommend this book to Escher fans and pop-up collectors alike.
