Books Info:

Creative Pop-up free pdf This is a fascinating introduction to paper engineering, with 50 step-by-step folds and projects. You can discover the secrets of pop-up papercrafts with this illustrated guide. It opens with an absorbing history of movable books, from 13th-century volvelles to the sophisticated creations of today. It includes a dedicated section on materials, tools and techniques, with helpful advice on troubleshooting. It includes more than 30 step-by-step folds, ranging from simple V and A folds to complex twisting techniques. It offers a selection of inspiring and easy-to-follow projects that allow you to put the folds to use: make a pretty ballet dancer using the articulated technique or a cute frog in a splash by combining a V fold inside a circular tab-held shape. Movable books have delighted adults and children alike for centuries. This book explores their history, describing how paper mechanisms, such as pop-ups, tabs, rotating wheels and flaps, have been used in greetings cards, books and advertising. Following an informative chapter on materials and techniques, there are 50 folds and projects to try. They are all shown step by step, with plenty of photographs showing all the stages. Learn basic folds, such as a beak fold, floating layers and slot technique, then use these skills to create delightful pop-ups such as a birthday cake, monkeys in a tree, or swan and cygnets. A gallery of works by pop-up artists is also included.
