Synopsis

Paper Toy Monsters Make Your Very Own Amazing Paper Toys by Brian Castleforte

A breakthrough paper-folding book for kids-paper airplane meet origami meets Pokemon. Papertoys, the Internet phenomenon that's hot among graphic designers and illustrators around the world, now comes to kids in the coolest new book. Created by Brian Castleforte, a graphic designer and papertoy pioneer who rounded up 25 of the hottest papertoy designers fro around the world ( Indonesia, Japan, Australia, Italy, Croatia, Chile, etc). PAPERTOY MONSTERS offers 50 fiendishly original die-cut designs that are ready to pop out, fold, and glue. The book interleaves card stock with paper stock for a unique craft package; the graphics are colourful and hip, combing the edginess of anime with the goofy fun of Uglydolls and other collectibles. Plus each character comes with its own back-story. The results are delicious: meet Pharaoh Thoth Amon, who once ruled Egypt but is now a mummy who practices dark magic in his sarcophagus. Or Zumbie the Zombie, who loves nothing more than a nice plate of brains and yams. NotSoScary, a little monster so useless at frightening people that he has to wear a scary mask. Yucky Chuck, the lunchbox creature born in the deepest depths of your school bag. Plus Zeke, the monster under your bed, Nom Nom, eater of cities, and Grumpy Gramps, the hairy grandpa monster with his very own moustache collection. Includes 10 black templates for you to design your own paper toy monsters!
