Astro Poetica: Free mini poem book to download and make.

Something to do with the kids in the holidays. Or on your own. 🙂

I’ve been busy experimenting with making little origami books in different forms and I thought I’d like to share the fun, so I’ve designed a poem book for you to download and make at home.  The poem is from Astro Poetica by Dom Conlon.  The illustrations are new.

download-36All you need to do is download the PDF from Inkology here, print it out and get cutting, folding and glueing!  Full instructions are included. You will need computer paper, glue and cardboard (a cereal box would be ideal).  I used coated photo paper to print out my book, but it will work with any computer paper.

Once you’ve made it and know how it’s done you could experiment with making your own books, be creative, experiment with paper, ideas, words, pictures….

A full set of photos of me making the book are here.

Merry Christmas!
