Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Imagine folding a piece of paper into nail clippers that really work, or a Swiss Army knife that actually opens, or a surfer on a wave that crashes when the surfer is slid forward...There's no need to imagine-this is for real!

In Origami to Astonish and Amuse Jeremy Shafer has taken the art of paper folding in an entirely new direction. Filled with hundreds of entertaining models and folding ideas, ranging from amazingly simple to ridiculously complex, this is origami at its most fun and creative.

Synopsis:

Delightfully detailed designs, from the incredibly simple exploding envelope to the highly complex "man swatter", are certain to dazzle all ages. Illustrations.
