Pop Ups




Recently I have been trying to teach myself some simple Pop-up techniques. As far as I can tell there are at least 2 ways to do this, you 1) hunt through charity shops for pop up books that are not too badly damaged and then pull them apart and take notes, or 2) you can trawl the internet for helpful guides such as the one below under my 'links'. I haven't tried to make a carousel pop up book yet, but it is worth a look.

Hi!

I am a pop-up book lover and I have a blog specialized on this theme.

http://librospopup.blogspot.com

It's written in spanish, but most of the links on it are in english.

There's a lot of pages about to making pop-up cards and books with mechanisms. Here it is a link on the "How to" tags in my blog:

I liked your Hiroshima Tree illustration a lot!
