B3558. Cut & Fold Tech. ... Pop-Up Designs / Jackson B3558. Cut and Fold Techniques for Pop-Up Designs by Paul Jackson. 2014. 128pp. 8.75"x8.75". Paper
While marketed to designers, this book is a gem for those of us making objects by hand. Use these simple techniques to create exciting, but surprisingly easy-to-make, 3-D designs. Each pop-up is cut from a single sheet of paper, which is ideal for cards, but they are equally suited for bookmakers when the designs are repeated in an accordion fold structure. The emphasis is on surface design over complex cutting. Each chapter introduces a new technique and shows it can be adapted in many different ways or combined with techniques from earlier chapters.
