Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Everyone loves a good book, but whats better than one youve made by hand? And not just any straightforward book, but simple pop-up books, flip books, magic pamphlets, pop-up maps, and accordions! Esther K. Smith, author of How to Make Books, unlocks the secrets of making tricky book forms even if youve never worked with paper before.

While some of these 25 projects can be made by kids with a little help from mom or dad, all are designed with the adult in mind—the adult whos a kid at heart! With step-by-step directions and charming illustrations, a few carefully placed cuts and an array of folds and twists almost magically become a colorful, multidimensional book.

Synopsis:

In her follow-up to "How to Make Books," Smith gives paper lovers 25 projects for fun and whimsical toys and books that flap, flip, pop up, and unfold. 50 full-color photos; 100 full-color illustrations.
