The world of pop-up books, movable books, flip books and mechanical cards is a magical one. But who are the pioneers of their paper mechanism? What are the techniques used to make these books? How do you make 3D, cause scene to appear and disappear and suggest movement? This book presents a selection of both classic works and contemporary designers and artists who have appropriated traditional techniques to revitalise this world with their astonishing book creations. It is also available in Spanish.
