"This amazing book is not only a history of pop-up and novelty books, but is packed with great photos and articles about the books, the industry, and the artists that created them. I thoroughly recommend this book to anyone who is interested in the genre!!"- Ray Marshall, paper engineer and graphic designer. "...The art of a great insight into the world of pop-ups. You can find information about the history of pop-ups and about the pioneers and contemporary pop-up artists as well as the different techniques of pop-ups. And not only in writing. It is an elaborate reference book about all things pop-up." - faltmanufaktur blog by Martina Kraus, freelance illustrator and paper engineer. "The author of The Art of Pop-Up, Jean-Charles Trebbi, says that there are only about 100 paper engineers in the world. Well, those guys are my papercraft heroes, and M. Trebbi's book is papercraft geek bliss. This awesome title is a lovingly-curated pictorial history and appreciation of the pop-up book, its masterminds and creators. That description sells this wondrous title short, because although the main focus is on the movable book, just about every imaginable type of paper engineering mechanism and curiosity is featured, going way beyond the book...This book is an inspirational mother lode. It examines the past and imagines the (sometimes digital) future of paper engineering. It is a book to dip into time and again - a go-to resource and inspiration for everyone who loves 3-D interactive papercrafting." Susan Janes, The Papercraft Post
