The style of Spanish architect Antoni Gaudí is easily recognizable for its organic forms and whimsical references to nature. What better way to convey this exuberant architecture than with a pop-up book? Graphic designer and paper engineer Courtney Watson McCarthy cut out and layered oversized images of Gaudí’s most iconic works: Park Güell, Casa Batlló, Casa Milà, and Sagrada Família.

Although it’s only 16 oversized pages long, the book presents detail images of the buildings along with the 3D pop-ups. In addition, quotes from the architect, a biographical introduction, and descriptions of project challenges and client goals help place the colorful graphics in context.

Published in October 2012 by Thames & Hudson, Gaudí Pop-Upshas a list price of $29.95.
