Palo Origami: Dinosaurs, Pterosaurs, and More is a book of my original origami designs featuring 12 dinosaurs, 10 other prehistoric vertebrates, 4 prehistoric invertebrates, and 5 kinds of plants. There are 31 designs in total spanning a range of difficulties from easy to advanced.
Designs include: Tyrannosaurus, Diplodocus, Brachiosaurus, Parasaurolophus, Corythosaurus, Monoclonius, Triceratops, Baryonyx, Iguanodon, Stegosaurus, Velociraptor, Oviraptor, Dimetrodon, Sharovipteryx, Plesiosaurus, Kronosaurus, Pterodactylus, Pteranodon, Dimorphodon, Titanis, Wooly Mammoth, Pterygotus, Anomalocaris, Opabinia, and Trilobite.
The designs in this book will work with standard 6″ / 15cm origami paper squares, although some models will be easier to fold with larger sheets if you can get them. Some designs are from triangle or rectangle half squares cut from this size sheet. If you are new to folding and need to buy origami paper (the book does not come with any), I recommend getting Aitoh paper because it’s crisp and thin. I advise that beginners avoid thick, textured, or metallic papers when learning the designs.
Kindle eBook Version
The book also has a kindle / eBook version. Diagrams for this version are in color for devices that support it, but they are also compatible with older black & white devices as shown below. You don’t need a kindle to use the eBook version – you can view the eBook online from your web browser or using an Android or iOS mobile device. All of the content in the eBook is reflowable to maximize clarity of the diagrams on smaller screens.
