Courtney Watson McCarthy is a paper engineer and graphic designer.

After experimenting with cards and other small projects, she went on to design and engineer Eye Magic, M.C. Escher Pop-Ups, New York Times--acclaimed Gaudi Pop-Ups, Pop-Up Numbers, Dali Pop-Ups, and Hokusai Pop-Ups. She lives in the Hudson Valley with her husband and two daughters. Martin Howard is the author of more than fifty books.
