THE JOY OF ORIGAMI, by Margaret Van Sicklen
The Joy of Origami brings a delightfully fresh twist to the ancient art of paper folding. Traditional in spirit—reaching back to origami’s original aim, as a way to share unique gifts with friends and family—yet contemporary in look and feel, with 100 sheets of paper featuring bold, often whimsical patterns specially designed to complement the models, it’s a jazzy, essential book for every origami hobbyist, whether an old hand at folding or new to the craft.
The 57 models range from birds and beasts to pinwheels and hats; the 100 sheets of paper included in the book are fun, bold and unexpected. The Everyday Paper section includes models using found paper: four cool ways to fold a dollar bill, an awesome newspaper baseball mitt, and fun ways to turn unwanted business cards into origami creatures. What is the real joy of origami? The "Wow!" that comes after the final fold.
