Hello, I am a writer. I have a series of children’s books that I want to be made as a Pop-up Book. Looking for someone to help me create my pop-up book. I need an artist and a paper engineer. I have my manuscript ready to go. Any recommendations?

Any news on Janet and Anne Grahame Johnstone. Wilhelm Busch or Arthurian Legends please point me in the right direction. Also vintage and contemporary pop up books please.
