[BKARTS] Peller pop-up box

I met the late Hugo Peller at a GBW Standards seminar many years ago when he was demonstrating gold leaf tooling. He had a sample of a pop-up box that he had designed which caused the book to rise from a slipcase as you opened the outer shell. He apparently taught a workshop in New England in 1987 about this 'trick #99'. Does anyone have any instructions/diagrams/samples on this technique? Thanks.
