Children's LiteratureTraditional origami has many bounds and limits. What can be created by breaking those bounds? For example, what would happen if you started with a round piece of paper rather than a square one? What if you cut the paper, or glued it? This opens up a new world of possibilities. This book will show the reader how to create pieces by weaving, folding, and even cutting and gluing pieces together. You can create things such as a soccer ball, a star, dragonflies, boxes and various other shapes and designs. These are beautiful when they are complete, but they are not beginning origami tasks. The instructions are complicated (because the designs are complicated), but they are explained well with diagrams, words, and photographs. This book also includes much of the history of origami, including some Japanese characters. This book could be useful in a high school art class, or even in a math class to teach about geometry and shapes. 2002, Sterling Publishing Co, Ages 10 to 18.
