Animal Atlas was published by DK a couple of months ago and has now dropped in price to under a tenner at Amazon, which makes it well worth picking up.
The 78 page book is packed full of inspirational ideas for building animals that have been designed by renowned UK AFOLs Jason Briscoe, Rod Gilles and Simon Pickard. It also comes with 60 pieces for building four small models.
Although detailed instructions are not provided for anything but the mini-models, the builds are mostly small so it should be possible to 'reverse engineer' them should you fancy replicating any of them.
Take a look at the mini-models and some sample spreads after the break.
The parts provided build a panda, penguin, giraffe and kangaroo.
