Elegant and accessible, this interactive handbook teaches crafters of all ages how to create kinetic paper art. The projects are complete with examples, formulas, and the essential instruction that allows them to be constructed directly from the book with simple materials on hand: paper, scissors, and glue. Pop-ups are grouped by type—box or triangle—and as the chapters progress, the techniques are combined and layered for more dramatic effects. With its thorough explanations and inspiring ideas, this book will bring color and motion to crafters’ cards, scrapbooks, and invitations.

This is one of the very finest instructions books I have ever seen. (I taught for over 30 years and have written many instructional texts).
The design is beautiful, not only on the eyes, but also in its structure. The instructions are clear and clean.
The book is so beautiful that you may want to order an extra set of the practice cards so you don't have to cut up the originals in the book. You can get them from www.popularkinetics.com (directly from Ms Barton).
You will probably also want Volume 2 (for which there don't seem to be extra cards yet). This is every bit as good as Volume 1.

Pop-up books and cards delight children and adults with their unique and clever designs, but how are these intricate pictures created? If you¿ve ever wanted to make one yourself, The Pocket Paper Engineer will show you how.<BR/><BR/>This set of two volumes focuses on basic pop-up forms, platforms and props in a fully hands-on manner. Designed to be taken apart and used in construction, the pages are sturdy and include pockets to place your finished products. Clear directions and illustrations show you exactly how to put these pop-up designs together, and then explain how to use these newly acquired skills for creations of your own.<BR/><BR/>The Pocket Paper Engineer is well-designed, and the step-by-step instructions are easy for anyone to follow. I highly recommend these unique how-to books on crafting pop-ups.<BR/><BR/>Reviewer: Alice Berger, Bergers Book ReviewsWas this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
