5.0 out of 5 stars The Origami Bible, 27 Dec. 2012

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Origami Design Secrets: Mathematical Methods for an Ancient Art, Second Edition (Paperback)
Most origami books are a collection of recipes for making models. This book contains the recipes but also the theory behind them -- it gets pretty mathematical. As another reviewer has said, it is not a book for beginners. There are a few models near the beginning that could be made by an junior origamist, say having worked through one of the beginner books. But most of the models are strictly for experts. Many do not have folding instructions -- simply a crease pattern and a few hints. How do you find a sheet of paper that is ten metres square? And where do you find a floor large enough to fold the paper?

Having said that, anyone with an interest in origami should buy the book, even if only to marvel at what can be achieved with a a sheet of paper, no cuts, no glue, and no modular multi-sheet malarky. Robert Lang has taken origami to a level that was inconceivable before he began. A true genius.
