When I Read The Title,

paper engineers,

 I just had to have a look,

they are a non-profit organization of pop-up book professionals and enthusiasts, who recently released a collection of pop-up cards dedicated to the alphabet,
 the society is called The Movable Books Society

 and the book is titled A to Z: Marvels in Paper Engineering, features designs from 26 paper engineers and celebrates the Society’s 25-year history,

 each card is consistent in size, measuring six by eight inches, but features strikingly different designs from a wide array of paper-focused designers,

 included are the strong graphic sensibility of Kelli AndersonHiromi Takeda’s delicate ode to flowers, and a supernova “S” by Isabel Uria, a Brazilian artist who also designed the clamshell box,

 in addition to each letter folio that includes a description of its artist’s inspiration, the compendium comes with a history of The Movable Book Society by Ann Montanaro Staples and an introductory essay by Larry Seidman,

 A to Z is limited to 2,000 copies and is available for pre-order on the Society’s website

and no I am not on commission, I was just intrigued when I read the phrase Paper Engineer.
