Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Kristin Harris
This is the definitive reference book for the aspiring paper engineer. The lifeblood of pop-ups is kinetic energy, or the energy resulting from motion. When a card or book is opened, wonderful things happen as a result of that energy. This is the ultimate collection of folds put together for the purpose of learning how to create pop-ups. The only true pop-up art included with the book is on the first page. A very complex white scary monster jumps out to greet you as you read the introduction, a brief history and the glossary of terms. What follows are fourteen pages of samples of a variety of folds and the resulting effects when used in a pop-up environment and then the final two pages contain general instructions about how pop-ups are made. This is a must have for any with serious interest in this art form.
Midwest Book Review
It's hard to put an age range on this presentation which is definitely not for the very young: this provides a pop-up presentation on how to put together a pop-up book, surveying all angles of the paper engineering involved. From parallel and angle folds to pull tabs, this provides step-by-step coverage plus a history of pop-ups. Middle school age ranges on up will find it delightful.

    bits and bits

    I'm a student at Brooklyn Technical High School in New York. This book helped me a lot in creating my pop up book for technology class. Each and every pop up has little descriptions.. but they don't really tell you how to make it. However, this book is informative in relation to the other books I've tried.

    Everthing you wanted to know but didn't know who to ask

    Not a story book, but an excellent source for the ' how to ' of the pop-up art form. Simple straight forward 3D examples with written formulas for the elements of folds and angles, make the book more of a tangible sampler than a techinical text. Recommended for the artist or illustrator or anyone looking to make a different type of visual presentation.

    One of my favorite pop-up's

    I am the author of this book. Children often ask me which of my books is my favorite. I now tell them THE ELEMENTS OF POP-UP. I created this book because kids asked for a book on how to make pops. Not only do Jim and I explain how to make the pops, we give you an pop-up example of each of the basic designs. I hope you have fun with this book and that you learn to build some really cool pop-ups. By the way, Jim Diaz is the co-author, not Jim Carter.
