I have received sample items to facilitate my post.
I’ve always been fascinated and impressed with origami. How could they make it even more appealing? By combining it with one of my favorite genres: horror!
This book features meticulous step by step instructions, teaching you how to create the most complex and impressive scenes from nothing more than paper. So many classic horror icons are included, from Godzilla wreaking havoc in the streets to Dr. Frankenstein’s watchtower, complete with lightning bolt striking.
Templates are included for each project, which are actually accomplished through kirigami (folding and cutting) to create a more precise outcome. I think this book will provide many hours of intense concentration and beautifully spooky rewards.
From the publisher:
Paper Dandy’s Horrorgami features 20 kirigami (cut-and-fold) designs based around haunted houses and scenes from horror films by the creator of the successful Horrorgami blog and exhibition.
Each project features step-by-step instructions and a template that you remove from the book. You then follow the lines on the template, cutting and folding to make your own kirigami model. All you need is a scalpel, a cutting mat and a ruler. Clear cutting tips help you with the tricky stages and give you an order in which to complete your work, while photos of the finished model show you the final design. Projects are ranked from beginner to advanced.
Suitable for folding experts and beginners alike, Paper Dandy’s Horrorgami makes the perfect Halloween activity.
