|From The Publisher*||Introducing fold-by-number, a revolutionary origami new concept in paper folding. Created by the founder of Taro's Origami Studio, Origami City marries the joy of paper folding with the foolproof appeal of paint-by-number with the imaginative play of LEGO or Playmobils.|
This ingenious book is an all-in-one kit for a complete origami metropolis: 75 realistic pieces to fold with step-by-step instructions; an illustrated paper play mat; and over 100 sheets of preprinted origami paper with numbers and lines for folding. The models-houses, office buildings, cars, emergency and construction vehicles, an airport, even dogs and squirrels to run in the parks-are meticulously detailed, illustrated by Brooklyn-based artist Simon Arizpe.
For ages 7 and up.

|Biographical Note||Taro Yaguchi is the founder of Taro's Origami Studio. By profession, he is a Japanese patent attorney who holds offices in Tokyo, Osaka, and Philadelphia. Like all Japanese children, Taro grew up making origami at a young age, but it wasn't until he was a grown man that origami became his passion. His initial design was a paper airplane that contained his firm's information on one side and a plane design on the other. This proved so popular that he started experimenting with new folds on the long transpacific flights his business requires. Now Taro's Origami Studio has dozens of original designs ranging from cars and trucks to animals to buildings, and has partnered with companies and brands like Nickelodeon, Chase, ABC, Lord & Taylor, and Uniqlo, among others.|
