Artist Talk and Book signing
Ron van der Meer was the first paper engineer to insist that adults could be as fascinated by pop-up books as children.His specialist books on architecture, music and psychology have been international best-sellers bringing the thrills of pop-ups to adults, and his ingenious mechanics show the full potential of paper engineering.
Ron will give a talk about pop-up books, the manufacturing side of it and the ins and outs of paper engineering. He will show samples of his books, greetings cards and advent calendars, and give a demonstration of paper engineering a greetings card.There will be an opportunity for questions and answers plus signings of his new books.
