Summary

Summary

Explore the far edges of what's possible with "the new origami." The objects are fantastic, but the folding techniques use simple triangles and squares, pyramids, and cubes. Master spiral designs, multi-pointed stars, 9-sided gift boxes, and 12-sided gyroscopic whirligigs. More elaborate designs invite you into the outer-space world of stars with starbeams and 8-sided flying saucers, whimsical crows in the grass, gorgeous nested boxes, and sculptured gift containers.

Move beyond the boundaries of traditional origami and cross new dimensions of creativity
These innovations to a classic craft are so extensive they could be called revolutionary!
You'll use new materials, forms, and folding and design techniques
That's what makes this type of origami extreme and exciting
But what you'll find most satisfying about it are the projects you'll create, whether you're breaking symmetry to fashion a cat family or producing super pinwheel-cube modules
