Gérard Lo Monaco, born in Argentina in 1948, is a highly accomplished illustrator and paper engineer living in Paris. He has been an art director at some of the most prestigious illustrated publishing houses. His work includes poster designs, album covers and favorite pop-up books for children such as Le Petit Prince, A Train Journey and Moby-Dick. This is the first series of pop-up cards designed by him.
"I wanted to engineer a series of pop-up cards which are like abstract compositions filled with optical illusion & trompe-l'oeil effects. The cards are made of one single piece of paper cut & folded in a manner that there is no waste and a perfect harmony of positive and negative."
