Great idea
LITER OF LIGHT, INDEX: AWARD 2013 FINALIST. Let’s be honest, most of us take light for granted. Shockingly, a staggering 1.5 billion people live without electricity, and thus without light.

Over the last week I’ve been playing with pop-ups, something I’ve always been interested in, I fondly remember a Jack and the Bean Stalk story pop-up book, from when I was a child, so thought I’d have a mess about with some basic methods and incorporate…
