The Pop-Up Art Book by Poposition PressThe Pop-Up Art Book is a collaborative successful Kickstarter project by Poposition Press (Rosston Meyer and Marc Meyer), known from the artistic Pop-up Funk book. This beautiful pop-up book brings together the six artists Angry Woebots, Skinner, kozyndan, Junko Mizuno, Tara McPherson and Jim Mahfood. The Pop-Up Art Book represents different styles like comic book artwork, street art, illustration and fine art. Each artist contributes with their own original artwork that has been digitally deconstructed and then reconstructed into 6 surprising multidimensional pop-up spreads.
One spread we want to point out is the elegant “Drowning Party” from Kozyndan. It’s the only spread in this book that was cut with lasers. Only lasers can handle the curvy and highly detailed lines used in this design. Opening this spread is breathtaking and it’s a joy to see how the light creates amazing shadows around the detailed contours. A very artistic approach of making a pop-up, getting the most out of the artwork and it’s elements. The washed out colors, detailed illustration and paper engineering work very well together.
This highly collectible book (which by the way is almost sold out) is a great addition to the other pop-up book titles in the Art genre. It’s a mix of different flavors and styles and works great combined with the subtle paper engineering that leaves enough space for the artwork to shine. A nice bonus for pop-up book collectors is the foreword written by David A. Carter.
