By reducing familiar gadgets down to just paper, this book shows that a lot can — indeed — be done with very little. Because each pop-up works (despite exhibiting no apparent technology), the book enables an intimate, firsthand vantage point on invisible structural forces at play in our world. To satisfy readers’ curiosity about how something so simple can do so much, the book concisely explains how humble paper taps into the larger phenomena of light, time, soundwaves, and mathematics in order to make lo-fi magic.

Never has humble paper had such radical ambitions.

Misc-Store Amsterdam introduces: Misc Mini

A new adventure with Misc Mini!
Here at Misc, we’ve got some exciting news: we’re starting a big new adventure by launching Misc Mini, our first collection of kids’ stationery.

Learning to play as a child is a skill you keep your whole life. Through play, kids can learn to re-arrange and surprise; to turn things topsy-turvy and right way up! Whether they’re telling stories with princesses and goblins or drawing fantastic faces in unexpected places, play helps kids to explore the world that we all occupy together.

All they need to get going is a bit of paper, some pencils and a little place to sit. To this end, we’ve hand-picked a range of great kids’ stationery, furniture and books, with an emphasis on high-quality materials and forms that are just right for the little ones among us.

Give them a great place to play — browse Misc Mini online today!
