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
