The pop-up book originated in Europe and America is a combination of mechanics, structure, aesthetics and other knowledge. It uses the momentary tension when the reader opens the book and transforms it into a variety of three-dimensional dynamics through the interaction between paper parts of different shapes and structures. Effects, such as pop up, rotate, rise, open, etc.
In addition to printing, the main process of making pop-up books is die-cutting and manual bonding. There are hundreds of die-cut parts for a relatively complex pop-up book, which requires a lot of manual labor during the entire production process. For example, the pop-up book style of F A N F O L D used in pop-up postcards of paper sculpture works is characterized by the fact that the pages are facing up and down, which is different from the normal left and right facing. When reading, you must turn the pages of the book into a vertical shape to fully present the three-dimensional effect. The method of F A N F O L D is to cut the picture pre-printed on the cardboard along the die cutting to cut out the three-dimensional parts, and then through the folding of convex and concave folds, a step-like three-dimensional hierarchy is produced.
