Artist Research: Marion Bataille

I was lucky enough to find Bataille’s famous pop-up book “AB3D” in our own bookbinding studio, and in reading Paper Enginnering: Fold, Pull, Pop and Turn I ran into the book once again. Actually turning the pages is something really special.

I was considering using a little bit of pop-up in my illustrations. I’m just experimenting, but this is the artist I’m inspired by nonetheless.

This is an example of one of her few pop-up books.

The way she makes things move gives me the same pleasure as if a cartoon character came to life in the real world, because you can actually touch the moving paper. I think it would be lovely to work three dimensions into my illustrations in this exciting new way… but I’d need a lot of practice.
