These are some of my favourite pop-up books, mostly chosen for their interesting mechanical design rather than their stories or pictures. For this reason I’ve listed them with their paper engineers rather than their authors or illustrators. Most of these paper engineers have produced many more pop-up books which are equally amazing and well worth tracking down.
