World's Best Origami Book Review and Giveaway 12-14-10

Print Friendly and PDF


First, I would like to Thank Alpha Books (Penguin Group) for giving me the opportunity to do this review.  This is an awesome book!  I gave this book to my grandson and he just loves making Origami's.  Now, his brothers are trying to out do him.

Origami

Remember folding paper into a hand-held fortune teller, paper airplane or secret note square?  Whether a fortune teller novice or a seasoned paper-folding expert, the new book World's Best Origami, challenges readers with more than 100 of the most unique and best-loved origami patterns ever created.

Professional origami artist, Nick Robinson, guides readers through the process of folding paper.  Projects are rated from beginner to advanced and include everything from the traditional swan and poppy box to truly amazing pieces such as a geodetic tower and a jet plane!  Each diagram is clearly displayed with easy-to-understand folding instructions for a perfect outcome every time.

This book has great instructions to get started:

  • Choose the best paper for the project.
  • Make basic folds and perfect creases.
  • Follow clear and simple folding instructions for a successful project outcome.
  • Gain an understanding of origami symbols.
  • More than 100 pieces-the most comprehensive origami book on the market
  • Projects rated from beginner to advanced and include everything from boxes, containers, geometrics, and abstracts to figures, birds, animals, and flowers, and more-this unique volume has something for everyone at every skill level.
  • Each diagram clearly displayed with easy-to-understand instructions.
  • The only book to include the works of several masters of the craft, including Edwin Corrie and Francesco Guarnieri, as well as the author.

Nick Robinson (London, England, UK) is a professional origami artist and author who has been folding paper for 30 years.  A member of the British Origami Society who edits its magazine and maintains its website, Nick has written over 30 books on origami, as well as numerous articles, and done several commercial and charitable origami commissions involving origami and paper art over the last 20 years.  Nick has created several hundred original designs and teaches origami in schools, arts centers, and many other venues.
