Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Pop-ups are three-dimensional cut-and-folded paper constructions that are widely used for children's books and greeting cards. They have a magical appeal as they mysteriously fold and unfold. Expanding on pop-up material covered in his earlier The Encyclopedia of Origami & Papercraft (LJ 3/1/92), Jackson offers an instructional guide leading the craftsperson through an introductory section of basics to sections covering techniques and original design. The step-by-step projects are exercises in technique only, with complex constructions shown as examples. Like the author's previous books, this one is notable for its clear instructions and bright, colorful illustrations. For users of all ages; highly recommended for public libraries.-Constance Ashmore Fairchild, Univ. of Illinois Lib., Urbana-Champaign

This is a very thorough and excellent book, with one exception. The example projects all deal with hearts. Mr. Jackson includes several photographs of pop-up examples, but no directions on how to make them. He leaves the reader just to figure it out for him/herself.

The Pop-up Book is a terrific book for anyone who makes cards. A fantastic amount of information in the book, and enough information to learn and play with designs of so many types of Pop-up cards. Excellent teaching methods also in this book. I hope that Paul Jackson will publish another card book.

The book is rich in photograhies, well illustrated, but I regret that, after each examples explained, the author does not refer at which technic is reported the pop-up card in picture, just to figure out it is made.There are not enough mesures for the schemas.
