Condition: Very Good. Gently rubbed at the edges of the spine and wraps with a small scuff near the foot of the spine. Text complete, clean and tight.

From the introduction: “The purpose of this book is to stimulate interest in the imaginative possibilities of the kind of paper engineering which is used for pop-up books. It can be regarded as a basic dictionary or encyclopaedia of mechanisms which do work and which can be used as starting points for further inventiveness. The effects of the mechanisms are dynamic and three-dimensional and so it did not seem either sensible or vivid enough to try to describe them only in words and static two-dimensional pictures. Hence, it is a feature of this book that you can make a working model of each of the mechanisms. Only by making and playing with each mechanism in turn, can you really appreciate the possibilities which it offers.”
