Welcome to our tribute to Mark Hiners’ website about paper engineering
Most people will be familiar with pop-up books from their childhood, but we hope that by browsing this site you will see that pop-ups (or paper engineering) can be used for many types of book. If you are not already a fan of the pop-up type book, we hope you will find an opportunity to appreciate them and the craft & skill that goes into creating interactive, pop-up books.
Mark Hiner had been a paper engineer for about twenty years. Some of the items on this site had been partly or completely paper engineered by him, but we also include works by other paper to give a wider view. We would like this web site to become a useful resource for those interested in paper engineering and pop-up books.
T he name “pop-up book” is probably universally understood to be a paper book with pages that have 3d / interactive elements (like flaps or tabs), more specifically having parts of the pages which “come to life” or “pop up” as the pages are turned.
