Popigami: When Everyday Paper Pops, paper engineering by James Diaz, illus. by Francesca Diaz, merges the art of origami with that of the pop-up. Each of the pop-ups emerges from everyday materials, from doves formed from newspapers to ducks made from office notepaper, swimming on a lake of spilled coffee. The accompanying rhymes often seem oddly adult in terms of vocabulary and content ("Bills, schedules, receipts./ This office worker has one simple wish-/ Escape his tiny cubicle and get to the lake to fish").
