Introducing techniques for making pop-ups from one sheet of card, the third title in this series on paper engineering takes folding techniques into the third dimension. Each chapter introduces a new technical idea and shows how that technique can be adapted in many different ways, or combined with techniques from earlier chapters. These 3-D techniques can be incorporated into any design where typography and/or illustration are used, including mail-shots, personal publicity, invitations, business cards and greetings cards. With their emphasis on surface design over complex cutting, the pop-ups have an instant appeal for designers. Following the elegant, easy-to-follow style of Paul Jackson’s other titles for Laurence King, Cut and Fold Techniques for Pop-Up Designs is an essential resource for marketing professionals and design students.

This book explains, in simple steps and non-mathematical terminology, how to create repeat patterns in a line, on the plane, as tiles, and as Escher-like repeats. The book also shows how to make 'wallpaper repeats', where the elements of the pattern merge into each other, apparently seamlessly. Using letters as the basic elements, the book demonstrates how all repeat pattern-making comes out of four simple operations: translation, rotation, reflection, and glide reflection. It will provide the definitive one-stop pattern-making resource for professional designers and students across disciplines, from textiles and fashion to graphic design and architecture.
