Jean-Paul Leconte is a self-employed illustrator, graphic designer and web designer from the Netherlands. His interest in paper engineering started when he bought his first pop-up book in 2014. He and his girlfriend Denice started an online fan platform and YouTube channel called BestPopUpBooks.com, which features video reviews, author interviews, pop-up tutorials and so mjuch more. Jean-Paul also creates his own unique pop-ups and likes to share the progress of his pop-up projects and the results of his abstract experiments.
