Overview


Hours of enjoyment await with this big book of origami fun. Whether you're an experienced paperfolder or you're just entering the origami world, you'll find 37 captivating models galore right here, in all their well-illustrated glory. Robert J. Lang, a veteran origami artist, accompanies his step-by-step directions with more than 1,000 detailed drawings, plus a photograph of the finished model.
Start with a kangaroo, a nun, a rocket, or a bust of King Tut. Advance to a dragonfly, a dinosaur, a winged Pegasus, or a cicada. By the end, you'll be making action folds — models with moving parts that re-create flapping birds, rowing ships, and fiddling violinists. The author includes an introduction to the history of origami, plus helpful hints on tools and materials and a key to the folding symbols.

    An excellent origami book

    I have a quite vast amount of origami books, but this is the best one I have bought so far. If you are looking for some advanced folding projects, then you should definately buy this one. Some of the models that I found epecially fun and challenging was the cicada, the Tarantella (spider), the plane and the cocoo-clock

    great book

    This was my first origami book, which I received when I was about 9. It's so good that I'm ordering another copy because mine is falling apart (I am now 25). Most other books that I've picked up or have been given seem aimed at children, in which advanced models are still doable in a few minutes. The tarantula I did when I was 12 and it took me 2 hours. Be aware that occasionally there may be some typos but if you have some experience you can figure out what is suppost to be going on by looking at the next picture or the supporting text.
