London’s skyline springs to life in this ingeniously crafted book that lets you build your own paper city.
Citygami London is a craft project, a diorama, a study in architecture, and, when it’s finished, a stand-alone piece of art. Inspired by one of the world’s great architectural cities, Clockwork Soldier have created a unique experience that lets readers replicate London’s most famous buildings, while also gaining fascinating insight into their histories and significance. Here, scale models of the Shard, Tower Bridge, St. Paul’s Cathedral, the London Eye, and other structures are presented in die-cut, pre-folded, cardstock pages. Clear, easy-to-follow instructions show you how to assemble each building. Accompanying the models are a set of detachable cards of the buildings, allowing readers to play against each other by comparing facts and figures about the structures. Best of all, when every building has been constructed, the result is a display-ready cityscape of London. As fun as it is educational, this craft book promises hours of absorbing activity and a lasting keepsake for years to come.
CLOCKWORK SOLDIER is a London-based design company specializing in paper engineering. Their fun, intricate, paper-based projects can be found in numerous museums and gift shops.
