Product description


... a teacher of geometry because it allows students to fold figures ranging from simple two-dimensional polygons to complex three-dimensional figures ... can easily be blended into the regular classroom curriculum ... an excellent resource. I recommend it for geometry teachers as a supplement to their regular curriculum.
―Gary S. Luck, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, Milwaukee, USA

… It covers a truly wide range of objects, including the Platonic polyhedra, di-pyramids and some stellated or ‘sunken’ counterparts. The staggering thing is that each and every example is made of one single sheet of paper. It is astonishing what is possible in the realm of origami. The procedures of generating such a model are explained step by step, which enables the reader to follow the recipe. … I sincerely recommend this nice and absorbing book for all afficionados of origami. …
―O. Roschel, International Mathematical News (IMN), December 2010

Origami's recent explosive increase in sophistication owes much to the pioneering ingenuity of noted origami artist Montroll, as documented by his more than two dozen books published since 1980. ... The present volume collects instructions for folding diverse polyhedra, both convex and concave, including many beautiful variations on Platonic solids, more than 70 models in all. ... Notwithstanding the considerable detail the author provides regarding the matematical proportions, miraculously, the folding processes generally involve no explicit numerical measurement. ... Highly recommended.
―D. V. Feldman, CHOICE, August 2010

Origami Polyhedra Design is a breakthrough collection of original designs created by the author to make polyhedral shapes from a single sheet of paper through folding. In modular origami, a polyhedral shape is built by interlocking many identical origami pieces, where each piece is constructed from a separate sheet of paper. In this book, Montroll, an origami master who pioneered the folding of origami animals from a single sheet of paper, presents methods for folding various polyhedra from a single sheet of paper. The book is well designed and organized and makes you want to start folding polyhedra. ... and the instructions for the individual models are clear and easy to understand...
―Thomas Hagedorn, MAA Reviews, April 2010
