Abstract:

From making the basic folds and forms to crafting exquisite little flower pots, frames, and pinwheels, this right-from-the-beginning question and answer guide explains everything you need to know about origami. Hundreds of close-up color photos follow each step in the process as pencil holders, miniature chairs and tables, and beautiful traditional cranes emerge from the paper. Find out what tools are needed to get started and the important terms and symbols. Try simple techniques for creating seven projects, including coasters, paper hearts, a candy cup, and a knife and fork holder. Go beyond the fundamentals and see how to construct 14 exquisite items that require slightly more complex folding and assembling, such as a sailboat, dove, pine tree, and gift boxes. A gallery presents a collection of inspiring sculptural origami pieces by some of the best artists in the field.
