The Pocket Paper Engineer

Volume 3


 
 

Overview

The Pocket Paper Engineer: V-Fold Pop-Ups. The V-fold is the most dramatic of all pop-up forms, rising in a whoosh to tower vertically above the page. In the third volume of this award-winning series on how to design and construct pop-up cards and pages, readers make ten projects right out of the book which illustrate a range of variations on the V-fold structure. This hands-on approach enables readers to quickly understand the basics of how to build a stand-up pop-up. Step-by-step illustrations and instructions provide additional guidance in creating one’s own pop-up designs.

As with the first two volumes in this award-winning series, The Pocket Paper Engineer, Volume 3 is filled with construction tips, illustrations of pop-ups and recommendations for tools and supplies. This volume also contains a special sec- tion on how to produce a pop-up edition (more than a few copies) to use as event invitations or as gifts for friends and family.

The Pocket Paper Engineer: This instructional workbook trilogy is a complete class in the art of designing pop-ups. The award-winning three-volume series covers the design and construction of pop-up cards and pages using a playful, interactive format. In the first volume, readers quickly learn how to build simple cut-and-fold pop-ups by assembling projects right into the book. The same format is employed in subsequent volumes to teach more complex pop-up forms. Step- by-step illustrations and instructions provide additional guidance in creating one’s own pop-up designs.
