Gaudí Pop-Ups
Gaudí Pop-Ups
by Courtney Watson McCarthy
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £19.95

3.0 out of 5 stars A brave attempt to capture a difficult subject, 14 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Gaudí Pop-Ups (Hardcover)
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.


Skin Deep
Skin Deep
by Domini Wiles
Edition: Hardcover

3.0 out of 5 stars An early & well intentioned account of racial tensions in Leeds, 14 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Skin Deep (Hardcover)
Written in the late 1970s this is a briskly-written if somewhat simplistic attempt to tackle racial issues that were beginning to be experienced on the streets of Chapletown, Leeds. A well-intentioned and enjoyable read that doesn't quite convince.

4.0 out of 5 stars Clever format illustrating ecological concerns, 14 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: In the Forest (Hardcover)
A seqel to the same team's 'Popsville' which uses a simple but ingenious format to illustrate the way rain forests are being plundered. It optimistically concludes with the re-planting of trees which I doubt whether many of the loggers undertake.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty, ingenious - but to what purpose?, 22 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Without text this large format book provides five complex dimensional paper/card flower arrangements which, the publisher suggests, might be used as table decorations. However pretty and cleverly designed, I'm not sure that any but the most ardent pop-up book collector would want to use them in this way. But it's a tour de force of paper engineering that has been deemed 'Book of the Year' by the American-based Movable Book Society.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not very inspiring!, 22 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Impressive if somewhat showy paper engineering that is supposed to illustrate Chinese proverbs: personally I couldn't see the connection between words and pictures. My copy showed signs of hasty assembly: glue stains, mis-folded parts and places where the die-cutting was ragged or incomplete...evidence of poor quality control.
