Crafters of all levels can create their very own paper wildlife park with this fun collection of amazing origami patterns for making lifelike wild animals—tropical fish, whale, penguin, hummingbird, flamingo, lizard, frog, giraffe, zebra, elephant, tiger, and many more—featuring specially designed papers that mimic their fur, spots, scales, or feathers.
One of the most popular crafts, origami is the traditional Japanese art of folding paper to create shapes, animals, and objects without the use of scissors or glue. In Zoogami, world-renowned origami artist Mark Bolitho takes this tradition one step further, featuring all new patterns that teach readers how to fold their favorite zoo animals using specially designed paper that shows off their unique coats, scales, or feathers.
Following the easy, step-by-step instructions and accompanying illustrations, crafters at all levels can produce stunning animals, birds, insects, and fish. Using paper and card, the projects in Zoogami demonstrate the enormous number of ways to use paper folding—ideas to inspire and encourage beginners and unlock their creativity. Here, too, are projects of increasing complexity that will build confidence and skill one animal at a time.
