Pop-Up Design and Paper Mechanics: How to Make Folding Paper Sculpture by Duncan Birmingham. Guild of Master Craftsman (2010)

Duncan Birmingham explains how to create pop-up mechanisms in a clear and precise way. The colourful diagrams and interesting projects will inspire you to get making immediately. There is no complicated measuring, just really sound basic techniques which are built on throughout the book. It takes you from simple techniques and projects that children will be able to happily make to complex designs for adults and advanced paper players.

Bonus templates at the back add to the excellence of this book. I envision quite a few family round table making sessions with this book as our guide and inspiration.

[ps. This book is not yet available in the US but you can get it from UK Amazon already. And if you are in the UK Duncan runs pop-up workshops - see his website for more information]
