Overview

Robert J. Lang, one of the worlds foremost origami artists and scientists, presents the never-before-described mathematical and geometric principles that allow anyone to design original origami, something once restricted to an elite few. From the theoretical underpinnings to detailed step-by-step folding sequences, this book takes a modern look at the centuries-old art of origami.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Origami, or oriental paper folding, is the classic example of a craft that appears deceptively simple to the novice. Origami instructor Smith presents the basics for beginners, explaining materials and fold types in easy-to-follow photographs. Her projects include birds and small boxes. Lang's projects are more appropriate for advanced crafters. Lang uses his training as a physicist in laying out mathematically calculated plans for very complex figures involving multiple folds and precision fitting. His Black Forest cuckoo clock is a tour de force. These two books represent the opposite ends of the spectrum in doing origami, and both should be welcome in crafts collections.

    Wow

    I picked this up because I was looking for directions on just one of the models. This is spectacularly detailed on how to make our own designs and even goes over basics. There are other books that should be picked up if you just want a new model, however if you are reall interested in origami this is a must read.
