The land of origami


The land of origami

“… where everything can be created by using and folding paper!”



The land of origami is a new comic-style mini-series created by Erickson for learning and having fun through the art of origami.
The two books in the mini-series are set in the city of The land of origami and offer a fun activity program in the company of Caterina e Pierpaolo, two kind guides who convey not only their love of origami, but also science, to the children.

Starting from the first folds and progressing by levels of difficulty, the notebooks in the series are intended to accompany children ages four and up into the world of paper constructions, developing the following:

  • dexterity and concentration
  • math and geometry skills
  • visuo-spatial awareness
  • problem solving skills
  • creativity
  • cooperative work

Inside each notebook, parents and teachers can find a description of each activity proposed, many illustrated explanations and coloured paper to use for the projects.  And thanks to the numerous tips for teachers and educators, it will be possible to join fun, educational objectives, and creativity together!
