Paper Construction, One Red Dot: A Pop-up Book for Children of All Ages, 2005

This is a Paper construction.

This object is not part of the Cooper Hewitt's permanent collection. It was able to spend time at the museum on loan from Smithsonian Libraries as part of Making Design.

It is dated 2005. Its medium is cut paper.

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.
