Being “down under” doesn’t mean paper doesn’t pop! Seventeen members of the Victoria Bookbinder’s Group proved it in a weekend paper engineering class held at Melbourne’s Polytechnic campus. The class covered simple fold-and-cut pop-ups along with platforms, props, and V-folds. Pop-up collector Corrie Allegro also made an appearance and stayed for my slide lecture on pop-up book history. Thanks, Anne Newton, for making the arrangements for this class.
