Summary

Summary

Presenting origami masterworks by some of the freest designers and paper folders living today. Origami-do, "the way, through paperfolding", is to origami what the Bauhaus was to design -- a way of life and of design. Full-color photos of beautiful animals, birds, plants, toys, planes, masks, and figures are featured alongside detailed descriptions of the origami artist's techniques and stories.

Booklist Review

Don't dismiss the Japanese art of paper folding as a "kids only" craft. Artist LaFosse reveals through his own works and those of 39 other artists throughout the world that the way of origami (hence, "origamido") is a fully formed art for adults, too. More than 60 designs are showcased in full color and accompanied by particulars about size, techniques, and description. Four themes predominate: animal, vegetable, or mineral (a stegosaurus); play (a Slinkylike spring into action); form and function (tetrahedron); and masks and figures (St. George and the dragon). An attitude-changing introduction to the world of paper. Barbara Jacobs
