Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

For the last 20 years, Hiebert (Playing with Paper) has studied papermaking and book arts, including paper engineering and pop-up design. In this guide, the author and a variety of guests introduce novices to the foundational skills of pop-up design via a series of fun, decorative projects. Paper engineering, at its simplest, involves cutting, scoring, and folding to make the shapes or designs literally pop off the page, and the basics will be familiar to paper crafters with origami experience. The projects feature a wide range of styles, from a whimsical robot to a realistic rib cage that pops up from the surface of a card via a pull tab. Templates with cutting lines are provided, and an extensive full-color gallery of works by prominent pop-up artists provides added inspiration. VERDICT Pop-ups are popular with all ages, and paper crafters may be surprised at how easy it is to master the basics. The only minor concern for libraries is that this book has consumable pages on which readers are directed to cut from the book.
