The Complexities of Pop Up Special Edition



Over two decades after releasing The Elements of Pop Up, master paper engineers David A. Carter and James Diaz have returned with The Complexities of Pop Up.

This interactive educational book teaches you how to take the basic pop up structures from Elements and add complexity to them through advanced techniques. The Complexities of Pop Up also explores how paper can be engineered to use the rigidity, flexibility and elasticity of paper to achieve spectacular results.

The special edition of The Complexities of Pop Up comes signed by both David A. Carter and James Diaz in a gold foil stamped book and slipcase and is limited to only 100 copies.

Each copy of Complexities also includes:

  • Over 20 working examples of advanced paper engineering techniques
  • Essays on the qualities and history of paper and traditional vs. laser die cutting,
  • Printed and scored components to quickly and easily build six of the pop ups

The templates for every pop up in Complexities as well as from the original Elements will be available to download at David A. Carter’s website
