The elements of pop-up : a pop-up book for aspiring paper engineers by David A Carter( Book )

13 editions published between 1999 and 2005 in English and Undetermined and held by 770 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the definitive reference book for the aspiring paper engineer. The lifeblood of pop-ups is kinetic energy, or the energy resulting from motion. When a card or book is opened, wonderful things happen as a result of that energy. This is the ultimate collection of folds put together for the purpose of learning how to create pop-ups. The only true pop-up art included with the book is on the first page. A very complex white scary monster jumps out to greet you as you read the introduction, a brief history and the glossary of terms. What follows are fourteen pages of samples of a variety of folds and the resulting effects when used in a pop-up environment and the final two pages contain general instructions about how pop-ups are made
