We love to see pop-up books on Kickstarter! It’s a great way to get your hands on unique titles that most likely will be highly collectible over time. We have already seen some successful campaigns that made it to publication like What a Mess, 24 Hour Flowers and The Struwwelpeter Pop-Up. One of the first successfully funded pop-up book campaigns on Kickstarter was the beautiful Pop-up Funk book, published by Poposition Press. A collaboration between comic artist and illustrator Jim Mahfood and Paper Engineer Rosston Meyer. And here comes the exciting news: Pop-Up Funk is back on Kickstarter with a brand new campaign! Poposition Press, who also did a successfully funded Kickstarter campaign for The Pop-up Art Book, already has a lot of experience as an independent publisher. So investing money as a backer to this campaign is a safe bet. In this article, you will learn more about this beautiful pop-up title and how you can be part of making this publication reality.
“A pop up book featuring indie artist Jim Mahfood’s signature style, in three glorious dimensions.”
Pop Up Funk is a beautifully illustrated pop up art book, paper engineered and published by Poposition Press. The book features artist Jim Mahfood’s unique style in a three dimensional pop up format. Pop Up Funk includes six pop up spreads: Funky Beats, Sir?, Grrl Scouts, Pure Gonzo, Everybody Loves Tank Girl, Pop Life and Thrilling.
