Welcome to NC Paperworks!

Hi, this is Nick at the keyboard.
Welcome to NC Paperworks!

This new site takes the place of an older blog and features a proper Shop (at last).
It is still very bare, but bear with me: plenty of great stuff to come.
It is also very new: if anything doesn’t seem to work properly, please let me know!

It was set up to present and sell self-published collaborations with artists, artist’s pop-up books and original artworks.

Why self-publication?

Most of the publishing industry would have us believe, artists and readers alike, that pop-up and movable books are only cheap kids stuff and that pop-ups are mostly non-creative technical stuff (giving, for example, the publishers the licence not to pay us for reprints, and everyone – including other paper engineers! comparing paper engineering to door-making! – the feeling that plagiarism is OK, whereas it’s a crime of course); instead, it should be known that papered dimensional movement agrees with all art, all media and all public, that movable/pop-up making is an art (much akin to painted sculpture) and that pop-up works are time-consuming to create and expensive to produce properly.

And of course, self-publication allows complete control over the full book-making process.

To me, the pioneer in the field is Rosston Meyer’s
Drop by his website if you haven’t already!

And if you have any question or comment, don’t hesitate and contact us.
Always there and happy to help!

Cheers! – Nick
