From the best-selling author of This Book Is a Planetarium, this treasure trove of pop-up letterforms for type and design lovers thrills with clever paper engineering and bold graphic design.


Where do letterforms get their shape? Popular paper engineer Kelli Anderson explores this question from every angle, bringing the alphabet’s 26 letters to life in three dimensions with interactive pop-ups that invite readers to manipulate, project, and build their own. Each incredible construction is paired with a lesson in type—from historical highlights to fun takes that demystify technical topics, including letterform anatomy or photolettering.
