Paper Engineering for Designers

This comprehensive guide will appeal to all craft enthusiasts, it is also a great aid for designers and illustrators thinking of working with paper engineering.

Beginning with the basics: V-Folds and Parallel Folds – the essential structures of many pop-ups, it then explores ways to create more complex mechanisms, such as pull-tabs, pivots, wheels and dissolving windows!

This hands-on approach provides a grounding before moving on to show how to add dynamic structures and height to creative designs.

Pop-ups mounted in the book can be kept for reference and show how readers can incorporate their newfound knowledge and create a design. The book ends with step-by-step projects to make for yourself.

Keith Finch is an acclaimed paper engineer and the creator of many pop-up books.
