Happy Paper Zoo

Can anyone point me towards getting a copy of this book?



Designed by Kei-Craft, I believe it was published as a promotional freebie for a Japanese zoo back in 2008, but I'm happy to pay for it ... physical copy or .pdf download.

I've repeatedly emailed the zoo and the artist, who I've also contacted via Facebook, but over the last year they have totally ignored me.

I'd be grateful for any help in obtaining these models.

I haven't been able to find this exact book. However, there's a similar one on Amazon Papercraft Zoo (Japanese Edition): Kei Goto: 9784894443099: Amazon.com: Books

Cheers July 1772, but I have seen that one around quite a bit in my searching.The model I really, really, really want is that recumbent tiger, but It only seems to be available from the one source.

Cheers Kev, If anyone can find it it will be you or VK. I guess I need a Japanese speaker on my case, to try to make direct contact with Kei. No matter how hard I try, he just seems to ignore me.

this is from the US Amazon site,
which looks to be similar to the models that John posted in the initial post

Cheers Rick, but yeah I've seen that one too.

Kei's little animals do turn up in quite a few books, but that Tiger only seems to have been published in the Happy Paper Zoo book. Somewhere out there in Paperland there's a re-colour of it into a Jaguar too.

Kei has built life size versions of them ...



but he seems determined not to let me get my hands on them.
Perhaps he's scared my burnishing techniques will make them better than his?
