Overview

Origamido is a showcase of the finest examples of origami art from around the world. A veritable gallery of masterpieces in paper, it displays four engaging exhibits: Animal, Vegetable, Mineral; Play; Form and Function; and Masks and Figures. Never before has such an exquisite collection been assembled in one book.

Contemporary pieces from an international roster of origami’s premier artists abound. From breathtaking designs of Japan’s Akira Yoshizawa, to the awe-inspiring abstracts of American designer Ethan Plaut, to the incredible detail of the life-size insects of Italy’s Alfredo Giunta, more than sixty wonderful examples are featured.

Half the fun of Origamido is the "do" aspect, and that has not been overlooked in this volume, which is meant as much to inspire as to be admired. Several diagrams are included that reveal the secrets behind some of the masters’ most famous pieces.

Whether you are a professional or amateur origami artist, or just have a passion for paper, Origamido is an elegant complement to any library and makes a delightful gift for the paper folder in your life.

Some of the 40 international featured artists include Yoshizawa(Japan), LaFosse (USA), Paul Jackson (UK), Eric Joisel (France), Vincent Floderer (France), Yoshiide Momotani (Japan), Alfredo Giunta (Italy), Edwin Corrie (Germany), Minako Ishibashi (Japan), Ty Sovan (Cambodia), Soon Young Lee (South Korea), Ligia Montaoya (Argentina).

    A fresh perspective on the art of origami

    As you might expect the reading is very light but the pictures are stunning and vibrant. This book changed the way I will view origami from now on. From traditional to the cutting edge this book gives excellent illustrations of the possibilities origami presents.
