35 boredom-busting paper projects to make on your own travels.
With just a few simple folds, you'll be able to get from A to B in no time with this fun collection of 35 different modes of transport. Whether it's a trip through the Japanese countryside, taking in the view of Mount Fuji on the iconic bullet train, or a trek across the Sahara desert on a camel, the projects on offer are guaranteed to keep you entertained, especially on your own long journeys in cars, on ferries, or in airplanes.
Every project comes with simple step-by-step instructions and clear photographs with helpful arrows showing you where to fold. Each design has also been given a skill rating, so start with a simple one and once you've mastered that, move on to something a bit more challenging. Another great feature is the 50 specially designed pieces of origami paper included with the book, meaning you can start folding right away.
