Super Modern Book of Original Designs
on 29 December 2008
Got this book for Christmas and was impressed as soon as I opened it. The designs are ranged from fundamental models, simple models, intermediate and then complex models. All designs appear to be unique and are very well diagrammed. The author also includes a lot of text information about geometry and the crease patterns resulting from the folding of these designs.
I probably would not recommend this book to absolute beginners as even the fundamental models can be tricky to fold without a good understanding of origami techniques.
Anyone with an interest in this absorbing hobby should consider this book as it is so well laid out and very well produced.
Models include a Mouse, Squirrel, Partitioned Box (from a Bird Base, this is clever design), Wild Boar, Human Figure, A Devil Mask and a Tiger Mask (nice 3d designs) and many others. Instructions are also included for the designs shown on the front cover, something that does not always happen with some books on the art.
