Paper Construction, One Red Dot: A Pop-up Book for Children of All Ages
This is a Paper construction.
Carter, a master paper engineer, has created more than 70 pop-up books. He is acclaimed for his use of color, shape, and surface. As part of a five book series on color, One Red Dot presents 10 captivating and elaborate pop-up sculptures, each hiding a red dot. This visual "hide and seek" game challenges the reader to find the red dot. Carter’s works are innovative creations in three-dimensional form, with sculptural constructions that rise from the page.
