Product Description

Review

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

I absolutely loved this book wasn't sure what to expect regards quality with it being a pop up book but it is brilliant and quite sturdy so you aren't actually afraid to keep looking at it over again.

It's a lovely book. There are only about six pop ups but they are quite effective. I just wish there was more of it. I'd have been very disappointed if I'd paid full price for it but as I selected a part used copy I'm happy with my purchase. However, the way the outer cover has been constructed makes me think it will not survive too much handling but I'd rather see it used than sitting pristine on a self.

"Absolutely amazing" is the only way to describe this giant pop-up celebrating the vision and work of Catalan architect and designer Antoni Gaudi. His visual influence on Barcelona is immeasurable. Those who have been fortunate enough to see his work there never forget it, especially the astounding Sagrada Familia. Bold, distinctive, dramatic, his designs have brought countless visitors to Barcelona and today his buildings are among the most admired in the world.

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.

Highly recommended.

This book was ruined before it reached me. The pages had got wet somewhere and we're stuck together. Whoever sent it must have known as the pages had been ripped apart already and the card cover had bubbled. So disappointed! Even without the damage the pop ups were fairly clumsy looking. Doesn't deserve the previous good ratings.

Bought this for a friend who had been to the Sagrada Família but was disappointed to have not had time to queue to go inside. She was thrilled with the book! It's well made and the format is perfectly suited to Gaudí's incredible vision.

I purchased 'Gaudipop-ups' for my Grandson who is 17yrs this year and has decided he wants to study architecture.

He loved the book which shows all the fine details of Gaudi's work. M park

I collect pop-up books but did buy this for my grandson who thinks he wants to be an architect and really admires Gaudi's work. I shall have a job to part with it: it is beautiful!

This might make quite a useful introduction to Gaudi for someone who knowns nothing of the architect or his work but the pop-up interpretations of his buildings inevitably fail to convey just how amazing and special they are.
