Super! Das Buch ist sehr uebersichtlich und anschaulich gestaltet. Großes Heft mit der Möglichkeit, die angefertigten Exemplar-Karten einzukleben, damit man besser visualisieren kann und auch später noch einmal auf die Ergebnisse zurückgreifen kann. Für die absoluten Grundbegriffe ist dieses Buch bestens geeignet. Was ich schön gefunden hätte, wären ein paar mehr Anregungen, WAS man alles für Karten basteln kann - so ist jetzt die eigene Phantasie gefragt.
I teach paper engeneering in my 3-Dimensional Design class and have finally found a book with MECHANICAL systems. I have used Paul Jackson's "The Pop-Up Book" for classes for years but it lacked the levers and other mechanical movements found in Mark Hiner's "Paper Engeneering..." What we have typically done to understand mechanisms was to reverse engeneer our own collection of pop-up books but this has often destroyed our books! The quantity of designs in Mr. Hinner's book is a bit limited, and it DOES need the augmentation of actual pop-up books to see the variety of unique solutions to the same basic concepts.
I found this book 10 years ago in a used-book store. Looked interesting, bought it, and the rest is history. Since then I've purchased every book I can find on this subject, including Mark's latest (Paper Engineering With Elastic Bands). I make my own greeting cards using Mark's first book as a guide. The recipients never fail to tell me the card is a "keeper!" I then branched out and made a book for my 4-year old niece. The other books in this category have given me inspiration but Mark's books are my primary reference.
This book is a real gem for teachers interested in acquainting children with the engineering principles of pop-ups both as an appreciation of pop-ups they enjoy and introduction into making their own. Well thought out directions and a place to store your samples for future reference are provided.
The book is everything I was hoping for. It is a great gateway into the world of pop-up. It gives you lessons where you construct a basic pop-up mechanism and then glue it in the book for future reference. There are 10 such basic mechanisms. Very nice and informative for beginner. I would also recommend another book by Mark Hiner where the pop-ups are made with elastic bands. Great value for money, great buy.
After making several of the items illustrated in the book I was unable to figure out where I left the glue. Have any of you seen where my sissors are? I lost my place in the book after my dog ran off with page 13. Can I buy another page 13?
