Papercraft has long been a cultural product in Japan, with origami being well known around the world, and the Japanese design retailer Triad is showing just how advanced that craft can be with its newest product, Omoshiro Blocks. When purchased, the memo pads look like little more than the average pad of paper, but as its pages are pulled away, it reveals a tremendously detailed architectural model that was hidden within the pages.

The models are formed thanks to delicate perforations that have been made throughout each page on the notepad. The degree of precision on the paper models is truly astounding, with minute detailing on things like leaves in a garden and individual windows and facets along the edges of buildings.
