So I have been working on a Pop-Up for a Madeline 75th Anniversary book for Penguin for the last 2 years. It started as a 6 spread big glamorous book and then was cut down to one spread for budget reasons.
After several different versions this is what I am handing in today.
So I tried different ways of making a nice tall Effiel Tower. Version 1 worked well but once you cut away the famous arch in the base it didn’t have enough pull to keep it open. On to the next.
Version 2 also looked good but from the side it had a zig zag feeling. On to the third.
If you ever wondered what a pop looks like before it is assembled. Have a look at my desk. Sadly, it looks like this more often than not.
Option 3 with the help of Apple Maps. I wanted to find the perfect angle to get the pop to work correctly so Victoria suggested (and yes I am crediting you) to use the map on the pad to get a image. With the satellite option from Apple maps on the Ipad I managed to get this…
I also need a bit of direction with Notre Dame so back to Apple Maps I went.
Fingers crossed they like it as much as I do. If not the people in Paris will be hearing me scream from London.
