Dinogami 25 of Your Favourite Dinosaurs to Fold in an Instant by Mari Ono, Hiroaki Takai


Dinogami 25 of Your Favourite Dinosaurs to Fold in an Instant by Mari Ono, Hiroaki Takai

With big dinosaurs, small ones, ocean-dwellers and high flyers, there are projects here to entertain any paper paleontologist. Try your hand at the flying Pterodactyl or fold one of the largest land animals that ever existed, the Apatosaurus. From the Cretaceous period you can make the king of the dinosaurs, the Tyrannosaurus rex, and the spiny Stegosaurus from the Jurassic age. 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 an easy 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.
