Kirigami Animal kit available!

My publisher Sterling recently released a new edition of Kirigami Animal kit based on my book Kirigami Menagerie. It is an exclusive edition only sold at Barnes and Noble book stores and their online store. Here is the link. This kit includes the book Kirigami Menagerie, pre-cut templates of all 38 animals and one almost completed giraffe. For some strange reason the price of the kit is less than the price of the book...


A new book of paper animal sculptures out!

I have recently published a book of paper animal sculptures. Each of these animals was designed to be constructed, without the use of glue or adhesive tape, out of one continuous sheet of paper (except for the large ones like elephants and alligator, they simply didn't fit in single pages and I had to design them in sections). You copy the template on a sheet of card stock paper (there are many colors and textures available at craft stores), score the folding lines, cut the templates out and turn them into 3-D sculptures. Kirigami is a combination of 2 Japanese words "kiri" (cutting) and "kami" (paper). My designs are a kind of hybrid kirigami that involves a lot of origami techniques.
The whimsical limericks on the photograph pages were written by Erik Johnson.
The book is available through Amazon, Barnes And Noble and through the website of my publisher Lark Books.
