Rosston Meyer and I met through the Movable Book Society, which provides a forum for artists, book sellers, book producers, collectors, curators, and others to share enthusiasm and exchange information about pop-up and movable books.
We talked about Pop Up Funk, Poposition Press’s first pop-up book (2013) that was all produced by hand. This is a re-imagined version with a three dimensional explosion of art from Jim Mahfood the dark master of psychedelic groove.
Here’s another book we talked about, Skinner’s Necronomicon Pop Up book, which illustrates key moments in the seminal H.P. Lovecraft stories.
Rosston Meyer’s Recommendations:
His favorite paper for designing and engineering is Carolina 12 pt from Paperworks.
Meyer got into pop ups through the toy industry and enjoys listening to these podcasts:
The Paper Engineers Unite page on facebook is open to anyone interested in paper engineering.
#popuptober is a fun challenge that takes place on Instagram every October.

Gary A. Hanson did the sound editing for this episode. He practices and refines his skills in audio production while making his own podcast I’ll Have a Beer and Talk, a show about tech news, culture, weird animal stories and of course, beer. Gary is also the Deckle in Pulp & Deckle, a Portland-based community hand papermaking studio.
