Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
01/01/2014
Descamps, a designer for the French crafts magazine Marie Claire Idées, focuses on decorative and useful objects made using origami and paper craft. Crafters whose minds first go to paper cranes when they think of origami may be surprised by some of the household objects Descamps features here, such as the wall tidy stationery organizer or the small gift boxes, but there are also plenty of traditional origami pieces incorporated into larger projects, such as the mobile featuring origami birds. What's missing is an explanation of origami basics—types of folds, how to read a folding diagram—making this book more appropriate for dabblers than for crafters who are serious about origami. VERDICT Descamps's creations are pretty, and the directions for the simpler projects are easy to follow, but novices may find themselves lost without an overview of the essentials.
