Make your own origami zoo with Mari and Roshin Ono’s collection of amazing animals.
Whether you love cute and cuddly animals like the baby bear and the cheeky monkeys, or are friends with the feathered variety, you are sure to go wild for any of the 35 innovative designs. There are four great chapters explaining how to really bring your paper to life. ‘Animal Fun’ has classic designs like the crane and fox, while ‘Safari’ takes its inspiration from the Serengeti with projects for zebras, giraffes, lions and more. Next is ‘Sea World’, home to ocean dwellers including the dolphin, sea turtle and even a blowfish, and the ‘Forest chapter’ has ideas to transform your paper into a tree-dwelling owl or squirrel. Every project comes with simple step-by-step instructions and clear photographs, as well as helpful arrows showing you where to fold. Each design has also been given a skill rating, so start with a simple one and once you’ve mastered that move on to something a bit more challenging. 50 specially designed pieces of origami paper are included with the book, meaning you can start folding right away.
