Watch this video about pop-up books
“Many pop-up techniques are far simpler than they look but with a few simple cuts and folds you can take a common, flat piece of paper and bring it to life. My biggest thrill is showing you how, then standing back and watching your imagination bloom. I’ve been playing with paper for nearly 30 years and I never get tired of learning new mechanisms. I’m shameless about trying to recruit new paper engineers, too.” --- Ellen Bresler
