Pop-Up Concepts for the book “A to Z: Marvels in Paper Engineering”

The “Movable Book Society” will celebrate its 25th anniversary in 2018. On this occasion, a competition was held in July 2017. Pop-up designers from all over the world were invited to design one or two letters of the alphabet as pop-up double pages. A jury selected the designs to be included in the book “A to Z: Marvels in Paper Engineering” from the large number of entries. Even if you were allowed to submit designs for two different letters, each designer could only be represented once in the book. I took part in this competition with two designs and I am very happy that my design for the letter “C” made it into the book. (My design for the letter “M” will not be published in the book.) The book will be published in August 2018. You can find more information here: A to Z book

The book will be presented to the public at the Movable Book Society conference in Kansas City (Missouri, USA) in September 2018. I am very much looking forward to participating in this event as a speaker. More information about the conference can be found here: Celebrate the 25th Anniversary of The Movable Book Society
