Leonardo Pop-ups

Leonardo Pop-ups

Author: Courtney Watson McCarthy Format: Hardback Release Date: 23/05/2019

Leonardo da Vinci (1452-1519) was a painter, architect, inventor and student of all things scientific. His natural genius crossed so many disciplines that he epitomized the term `Renaissance man'. Today he remains best known for his art, including two paintings that remain among the world's most famous and admired, Mona Lisa and The Last Supper. This book features six meticulously crafted pop-ups of his most famous works: Self portrait; Annunciation; Ornithopter; Virgin & Child; Architecture - an overview of his drawings and designs; and Vitruvian Man.

Hokusai Pop-ups

Hokusai Pop-ups

Author: Courtney Watson McCarthy Format: Hardback Release Date: 20/10/2016

Hokusai (1760-1849) was an extraordinarily prolific Japanese master artist and printmaker of the ukiyo-e ('pictures of the floating world') school. More than 150 years after his death, his legacy remains as important as any Western painter's. Hokusai's work inspired a roll-call of great artists including Van Gogh, Renoir, Monet, Gauguin, Manet, Degas and Klimt as well as craftsmen and architects such as Frank Lloyd Wright. This book features six meticulously crafted pop-ups of his most famous works: The Great Wave ; Chrysanthemums ; The Bridge ; Waterfall ; Phoenix ; and Sudden Gust of Wind.

Dali Pop-Ups

Dali Pop-Ups

Author: Courtney Watson McCarthy Format: Hardback Release Date: 27/10/2014

Seven of Salvador Dali's mind-bending images re-imagined as superbly crafted pop-ups. The art of Salvador Dali, like the man himself, defies easy description. During a hugely productive working life that spanned much of the 20th century, he produced more than 1,500 paintings as well as other artworks and objets d'art including sculpture, jewelry, photography, etchings, lithographs, designs for theatre sets and costumes, plus commercial projects such as the Chupa Chups lollipop logo. Decades after his death, his trademark moustache and dandy outfits remain instantly recognisable, while his art has inspired and continues to inspire new generations of artists, from Andy Warhol to Damien Hirst. Enigmatic, playful, deceptive, outrageous, and - above all - adventurous, Salvador Dali will be remembered as one of the most important artists of the twentieth century.

For over a century the fantastical works of the Catalan architect and designer Antoni Gaudi have enraptured visitors to the city of Barcelona. Gaudi's creations reflected his abiding passion for nature and religion, as well as his meticulous attention to detail. Perhaps no other architect has become so synonymous with the aesthetic style of a city.

The inventive paper constructions of Courtney Watson McCarthy bring these spectacular works to life in a new and fascinating way that enables us to further appreciate the genius of Gaudi.
