Pop-Up Exploration

First we delighted in Robert Sabuda's amazing pop-up version of The Chronicles of Narnia and then collectively shuddered as we made our way through the classic Pop-up Book of Phobias created by Gary Greenberg, Balvis Rubess and Matthew Reinhart.

Next, with Carol Barton's The Pocket Paper Engineer Vols 1 & 2 and The Elements of Pop-Up by David A. Carter and James Diaz at hand, we tried out some pop-up forms.  The collaboration and the cross pollination that developed from exploring pop-ups together inspired some exciting applications.

Here are some forms we learned from the how-to books.

 And here are some of the ways we found to use these forms in our work.
