One almost feels that if pop-ups hadn't been concocted before Antoni Gaudi (1852-1926), his architectural works would have inspired their invention. The Spanish Catalan who wrote "Those who look for the laws of nature as a support for their new works collaborate with their creator" constructed his towers with a deep sense of their geometric integrity. This book's seven inventive paper constructions by Courtney Watson McCarthy present the three-dimensional qualities of Gaudi designs in pop-ups including interiors, exteriors, rooftops, chimneys, fountains, and benches. Vivid evidence of one man's gifts.
