The Pocket Paper Engineer, Progress Report

The Pocket Paper Engineer, Volume 1
Between classes this summer, I’m continuing to work on volume 2 of my workbook series, The Pocket Paper Engineer. The upcoming volume will demonstrate how to construct and glue pop-up props and platforms. It’s a big job. First I design the pop-up projects, then I photograph them and adjust the photos in Photoshop. Next I write and illustrate the step-by-step instructions, add more examples of finished illustrations, and test out the results. Since I’m also the publisher, I’ll be “on press” in China, checking color and positioning. I’m anticipating volume 2 to be out in the Spring of 2008.

 The Pocket Paper Engineer, volume 1, got a great review on the BoingBoing web blog this week. If you’ve never seen this site, billed as “A Directory of Wonderful Things,” it’s worth a visit. The review was also carried on another interesting blog, Geekdad.com.
