Create your own Lanny-themed origami bird mobile

To celebrate the publication of Max Porter’s Lanny in paperback, and to help keep you entertained at home, we have produced a printable craft pack to help you create your own origami bird mobile, inspired by Pete’s ‘little mobiles of badly made birds’.

At that time I was into finding and cleaning the

skeletons of dead things. Mostly birds. I would pull

them apart, coat them in gold leaf, reassemble them

wrongly and suspend them from wire frames. Little

mobiles of badly made birds. I’d done a dozen or so.

Lanny, Max Porter
