Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

When we see ghoulish creatures in movies, they scare us, but when they materialize as craft creations, they just seem adorable. Serving as Exhibit A in that thesis is Chris Marks' new collection of fiend and monster origami projects. Horrorgami wins special credit for making a staid art-form both more challenging and more amusing. Goblins, witches, and the undead have never been more fun.

From the Publisher
