Item details

“Your instructions are very attractive, easy to read, and have enough information to help those with less experience.” “The lino prints are lovely; the instructions are great looking and easy to follow, and the whole project is a superb intro to Hungarian map folding. “ are what some of my testers have said about this pattern.

This artist book pattern, shows you how to create one of the Hungarian map fold books from my shop called “Community.” A Hungarian map fold book is a variation on the lotus or star book with an inverted fold which makes it a bit more complex in form and appearance. Besides getting the 3 page step by step illustrated directions on how to make this map fold structure you will also receive a ready to cut out illustrated book and as a bonus, a blank pre-measured pattern for you to create your own Hungarian map fold books.

This book is a advanced beginner project, it is a little more difficult than the other lotus book patterns in my shop. I have tried to make the lessons easy to read with step by step illustrations and concise directions. This would be a good “next step” project if you have experience with lotus books.

The pattern kit includes six A4, letter size PDF files:
• 3 pages of step-by-step illustrated directions
• 2 pages/two-sided illustrated book to print out and assemble
• 1 page of a blank pattern for you to create your own Hungarian map fold books

A reminder that this is not an actual assembled book but a book to print out and put together. This project should take between one and two hours to complete depending on your experience. Users need just the print outs of the files and a few simple tools: a craft knife, scissors, glue and a bone folder or spoon to assemble the book.
