Today, we are thrilled to celebrate the official release of ART2-D2’S GUIDE TO FOLDING AND DOODLING! The companion activity book to our New York Times bestselling ORIGAMI YODA series by Tom Angleberger.
WE JUST RECEIVED WORD…
Tom Angleberger has been nominated for the Indies Champion Award!
This award, formerly known as Most Engaging Author, will be chosen on the basis not only of in-store appearance popularity, but also for having a strong sense of the importance of independent bookstores to their communities at large, and a personal commitment to foster and support the mission and passion of independent booksellers. Winner announced on April 18. Click here for more info.
Each book is equipped with five sheets of perforated origami paper! But you can also cut one sheet of 8.5 x 11” paper (ie: computer or construction paper) into origami paper. Fold the paper in half from top to bottom, then unfold. Then fold in half from left to right, and unfold. Next, cut along the fold lines and you will have four squares of origami paper.
Learn how to fold an Art2-D2! It’s only 10 steps and you can fold along with the author by watching the video below.
