Chris’ favourite film is “Back to the Future”, so I got hold of one of the original posters and had it sent to Michael J Fox to autograph it for him.

Strawberry Swing Pop-Up Book

As a second year GCM student at Ryerson we had to create either a slip case, book or box for my Binding and Finishing II class. I decided to make a pop-up book based on my favourite song as well my favourite music video, “Strawberry Swing” by Coldplay.

I chose six scenes from the video and drew out my own interpretation of the characters and setting. Once all my sketches were complete I had to take pictures of my drawings instead of scanning them because something was wrong with my printer. The images were placed in Illustrator, live traced, coloured and placed on a background. I originally wanted to have the pop-ups pop at 180 degrees, however, I didn’t have enough time (or patience) to create mock ups so I opted for 90 degree pop-ups.

Once all of my spreads were completed I printed them on 12pt gloss card stock; the parts that were going to “pop” were printed on separate sheets of card stock. The spreads were trimmed and then the pop-ups were assembled onto the appropriate pages with (cheap) double-sided tape. After the pop-ups were taped into place I glued a sheet of 10pt 2S gloss card stock on the backs of the spreads to provide stability and to also cover the portions of the spine that I cut out to create some of the 90 degree pop-ups.

The signatures were glued back to back and then cased into the cover that was made out of binders board and a laminated bond cover. Unfortunately, since I am horrible dealing with glue, it is covered in it and I did not jog the block correctly resulting in the spine being a tad crooked.

Overall, for my first attempt at a pop-up book  I am pretty pleased with the outcome of “Strawberry Swing”.

PS I love you Coldplay!
