Introducing techniques for making pop-ups from one sheet of card, the third title in this series on paper engineering takes folding techniques into the third dimension.

Each chapter introduces a new technical idea and shows how that technique can be adapted in many different ways, or combined with techniques from earlier chapters. These 3-D techniques can be incorporated into any design where typography and/or illustration are used, including mail-shots, personal publicity, invitations, business cards, and greetings cards. With their emphasis on surface design over complex cutting, the pop-ups have an instant appeal for designers.

Following the elegant, easy-to-follow style of Paul Jackson’s other titles for Laurence King, Cut and Fold Techniques for Pop-Up Designs is an essential resource for marketing professionals and design students.
