Publisher Comments:

Origami--or paperfolding--dates back many hundreds of years in Japan, but in the last sixty years or so it has developed into a widespread creative art practiced all around the world. Origami instructions are usually given in the form of diagrams with standardized symbols that can be understood by everyone, whatever the language of the folder.
For the novice folder, the lack of realism can be confusing, especially when the flat sheet of paper starts to transform into a three-dimensional design. PICTURE-PERFECT ORIGAMI uses photographs to aid clarity and understanding. The book starts by explaining the standard origami symbols and folding sequences in step-by-step photographs, so you can see exactly what you should be doing. The second chapter contains a selection of simple designs, carefully selected and arranged so that you can practice your new skills. As well as featuring the standard diagrams, each model is shown in step-by-step photos, so you can see each folding stage in action. There is also a continuous sequence of photographs running along the bottom of the page that shows exactly what the model should look like at the end of each step--perfect for novice folders.
The last chapter features a selection of slightly more challenging projects, created by contemporary origami designers. Again, the models have been carefully chosen to allow you to develop your folding abilities gradually. Key steps are illustrated with photos. By the time you have finished this book, you will have a solid grounding in origami techniques that will allow you to enjoy the wealth of origami designs that are now widely available--and perhaps even create your own.
