Publisher’s Synopsis

Sleight of Binding is your introduction to the world of magical books and the wonders of paper folding. Transform an accordion book into a Gallery Book that stands up for display or make a Jacob's Ladder that flips and turns to show new faces. You will be hooked on the magic right from the start.

Learn a new meaning for disappearing cash when you make the Magic Wallet. Make a Kaleidocycle, transforming a flat piece of paper into a 3D form that rotates to reveal new faces with just a few folds and creases. Create flexagons and accordions with disappearing faces. Each project includes complete instructions for paper cutting, folding and assembly that are clear, precise and fully diagrammed.
