North American Animals in Origami

 
 

Add new animals to your origami zoo with this new collection of North American birds and mammals, plus a smattering of associated plants. John Montroll’s computer-generated illustrations guide you step-by-step as you create the simple duck and swan, or learn newly-developed techniques to fold the body and massive antlers of a moose.


All the projects in this book are original and previously unpublished. In addition to John Montroll’s designs, the book features four projects by noted Japanese artist and engineer Fumiaki Kawahata.


As in John Montroll’s other books, instructions are clear, detailed, and easy to follow for both the new artist and the origami veteran. Pictures of completed projects accompany each set of instructions. Descriptions of the real-world counterparts of these paper works of art have been provided by students of St. Anselm’s Abbey School, Washington, D.C. Also included is information on where to obtain quality origami supplies. So join in a safari in search of the fascinating animals of North America, from the musk ox of the tundra to the quail of the open prairies to the roadrunner of the Great American Desert. Happy folding!
