MA Work

The title of my MA studies was: Conservation of Mechanical Books: An investigation in the tensile strength of adhesives and repairs to coated and uncoated papers. As a part of the study I created a set of sample cards demonstrating a variety of movements commonly found in pop-up books. The following is a sampling of movements created during this study.
