Between the Folds of a Pop-Up Book (video)

Whether it unfolds into a computer or a planetarium, everyone loves pop-up books. But have you ever wondered about the design and engineering that goes into making one?

Earlier this month NPR's Science Friday interviewed pop-up designer Matthew Reinhart, and he shows how he goes about  designing a pop-up book with paper cut-outs that can extend to nearly two feet.

You can see more of Reinhart's work on his site.

About Nate Hoffelder (11579 Articles)
Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader:"I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."
