This title illustrates ten basic mechanisms which are used to make pop-up books. Each of these mechanisms is illustrated by a working model which the reader can copy, cut out, and make. For each working model, there is also a page titled 'technical considerations' that points out important features of the mechanism and suggests possible uses to create original designs of your own. Models include multiple layers, floating layers, V-fold, magic box, moving arm, rotating disc, sliding motion, pull-up planes, pivoting motion, and dissolving scenes.
