Origami Poems and Pictures

origami anywhereA book prepared with the Biritish Museum. The concept is to combine three Japanese art forms under one cover. For each theme, the reader will be able to read the haiku, enjoy a painting from the British Museum collection, then make the origami figure. It's aimed at children between 5 & 8, although at that they may well need a parent on hand for a few of the designs. Half of the book consists of pull out squares of patterned paper.

As requested by the publishers (Nosy Crow) I used a "lineless" drawing style, which is attractive and encouraged me to develop some new techniques, which is always fun. All models are traditional unless indicated below. Curiously, here is no list of contents, nor are the pages numbered.
