Giant Robot is proud to join Castleforte in celebrating the release of his new book, Papertoy Monsters.
Papertoy Monsters is the first book of its kind made especially for kids (although crafters, toy collectors, techies, and gamers of all ages will enjoy it, too). It includes 50 die-cut templates, and all one has to do is pop them out, fold, and glue. There’s no cutting. Everything's prefolded. Simple. What's not simple are the graphics. Bold, bright, cool, and creepy--each monster is a unique creation of one of the 25 papertoy designers culled from around the world by Castleforte, himself an artist and pioneer in the papertoy movement.
For the event, Castleforte will not only talk about the book but also build toys, as well as supply templates so others can join in on the fun. Some templates will have pre-printed designs, while others will be blank and customizable with crayons or markers. He will also bring a wild assortment of already-built samples, as well as special papertoy template packs, T-shirts, and other surprises.
