One of the coolest reads of the year is Colossal Paper Machines, a massive book of interactive paper models that you can actually pop-out, piece together, and build.
Colossal Paper Machines includes full-color models of 10 giant machines, including a dump truck, space shuttle, excavator, ladder truck, front loader, concrete mixer, steam locomotive, steamboat, dirigible and Chinook helicopter.
The book has everything needed to pop out, fold and create your very own model. Plus, Colossal Paper Machines provides the story of how each machine works, who invented it and how it’s used.
Here’s an excerpt from the Chinook Helicopter page
