This review is from: Beginner's Book of Modular Origami Polyhedra: The Platonic Solids (Dover Origami Papercraft) (Paperback)
You'd never believe it, but these are so simple to make, they just take time. It is the perfect book for beginners in modular origami and encourages one to ask for more.

The instructions are clear, simple and large. Initially I would recommend using slightly larger paper because once you get to the smaller paper you need quite a bit of dexterity and a lot of patience to fit everything together. Some modules require triangular paper which they tell you how to make from square paper, but although this takes time, they are really impressive.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating and really do-able, 5 Jun 2011
This review is from: Beginner's Book of Modular Origami Polyhedra: The Platonic Solids (Dover Origami Papercraft) (Paperback)
This is a really terrific book which has already given me hours of fascination. The models are all very straightforward to construct; the instructions are extremely clear; and the finished product is really stunning. It's certainly easier to start with large pieces of paper when trying a model for the first time; some of them are quite fiddly to piece together. But once you've worked out how it goes and where the challenging stages are with each construction, it's possible to make very dainty models.

All the models require multiple units to be constructed, which means a lot of pieces of paper to fold. It's worth making sure you've got plenty of origami paper to hand before you start - you'll keep finding more models you want to make, and some of them use upwards of thirty individual units!

If you enjoy origami and are looking for a new challenge with it, or if you're interested in the maths of these polyhedra, this book will open up a whole new world.

This review is from: Beginner's Book of Modular Origami Polyhedra: The Platonic Solids (Dover Origami Papercraft) (Paperback)
This is an excellent book for anyone who is interested in modular origami and features some great models. It even provides a reliable method for cutting hexagons out of squares or A4 paper, something that's useful for other origami.

My best Amazon purchase in ages.

Totally recommended.

This review is from: Beginner's Book of Modular Origami Polyhedra: The Platonic Solids (Dover Origami Papercraft) (Paperback)
I bought this book as my son was making mathematical origami shapes as school. As we had limited knowledge of this I purchased this book. Some are very complicated and a lot of patience is required.

This review is from: Beginner's Book of Modular Origami Polyhedra: The Platonic Solids (Dover Origami Papercraft) (Paperback)
Useful for those who just want to make and those who want to learn.

The instructions are clear and if you want to have a more idea of how to do it yourself the literature of the geometry is very useful.

This book is full of the most amazing designs. It takes a bit of patience to create all that's needed but the end result is well worth it. We will be using this book for years to come.

This review is from: Beginner's Book of Modular Origami Polyhedra: The Platonic Solids (Dover Origami Papercraft) (Paperback)
The diagrams and explanations are easy to follow, but the lack of colour in the illustrations make it a bit depressing. My son has made some pretty impressive models from it though!

Very helpful, although instructions are a bit varied in detail. Some need a bit of thought to work out and others seem to state the obvious!
