The Making of a Pop-up Book

Check out this wonderful video, The making of a pop-up book.

Book artist Chuck Fischer and paper engineer Bruce Foster explain how the pop-up book Angels was created in a fascinating behind-the scenes peek.

The video is a great companion piece to the Libraries’ exciting new exhibition, Paper Engineering: Fold, Pull, Pop & Turn, which is on display in the Libraries exhibition gallery in the National Museum of American History through September 2011.
