The Encyclopedia of Origami Techniques by Nick Robinson


Origami is the Japanese art of folding paper into decorative shapes and figures. It consists of folding a single sheet of square paper (often with a coloured side) into a sculpture without cutting, gluing, taping, or even marking it.

To begin your journey the Encyclopedia of Origami Techniques Book is divided into sections from getting started and basic techniques (discussing types of paper, folding tips, and a very detailed explanation of the folding methods and symbols). With over thirty projects to try across all skill levels you won't want to stop. Beginner level covers amongst others the "rocking nun" and "10 point star". Intermediate and challenging projects look at "square bear" and "double cube". You can even be amazed by origami from around the world. You are sure to refer time and time again to this book as you master the varying levels and projects. You will also be amazed at what you can achieve with a simple piece of square paper. Each project comes with informational text, step-by-step diagrams, tips and challenges.
