smiley - biggrin I love it! The hedgehog is way cute, too.

One thing: please make sure you're clear on the fact that the library reference book in question is a *discarded* library reference book, clearly so marked.

We get Mail from librarians, you know. smiley - winkeye

Really sweet deco idea! smiley - ok
One question, is the back end of the hedgehog the same shape as the head? Maybe it's just me and my brain's faulty shape-recognition software...

Charity shops can be a good source of cheap not very interesting books too.

Thanks Superfrenchie smiley - biggrin

Yes the 'back' and 'front' are the same, so you have a free choice at the finishing stage. I have added in mention of 'symmetrical' and I hope that helps you to visualise it better smiley - ok

I have added in mention of charity shops too smiley - ok

Caiman raptor elk - Infinity lies outside the box

Interesting read. I might try it in my spare time (which I seldom have nowadays)

Thicker books might yield something vaguely spherical (probably very hard to finish that though)

An acquaintance of mine makes book sculptures, not just folding, but cutting and tearing as well. (If you are interested see https://boukjevoet.exto.nl/)

This looks like an interesting thing to make. smiley - smiley

One question that occurred to me is whether you could recommend this as a pastime for a child or young person. A teenager could make it, but a toddler would destroy it.smiley - sadface Perhaps 10 and over?

That is awe-inspiring, that is....I particularly liked the Divine Comedy there. Obviously, this is Olympic-level book art. smiley - biggrin
