Pop Up Book of Munich
By Jill Dawson
I created this piece after taking Helen Friel’s online course, “Pop Up Fundamentals: Story Telling with Paper and Light.” My book invites a viewer to explore three of my favorite places in the city of Münich, Germany — the Frauenkirche, Chinese Tower Beer Garden, and one of Oktoberfest’s most beautiful beer tents. Created in all white, my pop up pages may be illuminated in a variety of ways: by positioning a natural light source behind the pop ups, moving a cellphone flashlight under and behind the pop-ups, or by turning on a switch to light up integrated LEDs. I designed the pages in InkScape and cut them out with a Cricut.
