Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This book unravels the mystery of Geometry in Origami with a unique approach: 64 Polyhedra designs, each made from a single square sheet of paper, no cuts, no glue; each polyhedron the largest possible from the starting size of square and each having an ingenious locking mechanism to hold its shape.The author covers the five Platonic solids (cube, tetrahedron, octahedron, icosahedron and dodecahedron). There are ample variations with different color patterns and sunken sides. Dipyramids and Dimpled Dipyramids, unexplored before this in Origami, are also covered. There are a total of 64 models in the book. All the designs have an interesting look and a pleasing folding sequence and are based on unique mathematical equations.

Book News Annotation:

American origami master Montroll, the genius behind the single-square, no cuts, no glue approach; has created many famous designs and written several books. Here he focuses on folding single sheets into three-dimensional shapes to augment the recent interest in multi-sheet polyhedra. He covers designing origami polyhedra, platonic and related polyhedra, and dipyramids and dimpled dipyramids. His diagrams conform to international notation, and the difficulty of each figure is marked as one of four levels from simple to very complex.
