The Magic of Flexagons - folded paper curiosities and flexible puzzles to cut out and manipulate

A follow up book from Tarquin Publications aimed at a more general audience which contains cut out and assemble designs for flexagons and other related flexible novelties.

Material on flexagons had already been published by Tarquin in a previous book. I worked closely with Gerald Jenkins to revisit this material and update it. I also added material on some more complex flexagons and my own Hidden Aces flexagon, Double Cross flexagon and Magic Square flexagon designs.
