Editorial Reviews

KLIATT
Thirty-one different flowers are featured in this comprehensive book. A special section of color photos in the beginning serves to provide not only inspiration, but also detailed reference for folding and assembling the flowers. Each flower has detailed step-by-step directions that are accompanied by line drawings. Some of the flowers are: rose, hyacinth, carnation, tulip, Japanese iris, and Gerbera daisy. This is a great book that takes the art of origami to a new level.

Meet the Author

HIROMI HAYASHI was born in Japan in 1963. While she loved origami just as much as any Japanese child would, it was not until her beloved daughter was hospitalized that she found that origami can encourage others. Just then, she encountered a book called Origami Kyoushitu-Hana -meaning paper-folding classroom for flowers-written by Dokuotei Nakamura, and was fascinated by the art of turning origami paper into flowers. She has been creating various flowers in her own style ever since, and now resides east of Tokyo, in Chiba City.

    Challenging for a casual origami lover

    Love the flowers but not being an expert, I ran into problems with the instructions and the detail. Fortunately, help was available on the internet. By following youtube on the dahlia, I was able to complete the folding. Some of the instructions skip over what may be "obvious" to the author, but not intuitive for me. Makes for a bit of a struggle. Finished flowers are very nice. The illustrations are well done.
