From simple greeting cards to intricate paper creations, this engaging workbook thoroughly explains the mechanics of pop-ups while teaching paper artists of all skill levels to create 10 different designs. Step-by-step, full-color instructions coupled with detailed illustrations enable vibrant floating platforms, tabbed props, and miscellaneous other pop-up effects to be easily constructed. As each section includes perforated pages with preprinted designs and directions, scissors and glue are all one needs for nearly instantaneous pop-up creations. 

From the Publisher: This second volume of THE POCKET PAPER ENGINEER promises to be another hit with both children and adults who want to learn more about the craft of making pop-up cards and pages. Written in clear, simple language and generously illustrated with 91 full-color photographs and over 100 instructional drawings, the book is easily accessible to the novice paper engineer at the same time it offers design tips and ideas to the professional graphic artist and designer. The book's hardcover case is protected with a matte varnish that resists moisture and dirt, and the inner wire-O binding allows the book to lie flat while the reader progresses through the step-by-step directions for the projects. Each of the book's ten interactive projects introduces a basic principle of pop-up paper construction. The project pages can be pulled directly from the book, then cut and assembled with a pair of scissors and a glue stick. Information on tools, formats, adhesives, and web resources are also included.
