Nature Origami by Clover Robin (Nosy Crow / National Trust) @NosyCrow

We love Origami and all sorts of papercraft - truth is though, we're absolutely hopeless at it...
Thankfully Clover Robin's wonderful "Nature Origami" is the perfect book for us, with three difficulty levels of papermaking so that even the most banana-fingered crafters (us) have a fighting chance of making something really cool.

Produced in conjunction with the National Trust, as you can expect there are lots and lots of great designs here covering flora and fauna.

From the really easy (rabbits and mice) to the slightly more tricky (foxes and birds) you'll find 13 Origami designs, and 50 sheets of Origami paper to get you off to a flying start.

I think the only issue we had with this book was that whole business about practically destroying the book to make the things inside (but of course you're free to use any paper you have to make the models, you can keep the book intact - or it's the perfect excuse to pick up two copies!)

Gloriously illustrated and extremely clever papermaking, "Nature Origami" by Clover Robin (what a beautiful name!) is out now, published by Nosy Crow / National Trust (kindly supplied for review).
