Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This full-color gallery showcases a stunning array of creations by a world-renowned origami master. Saadya's museum-quality origami sculptures range from realistic depictions of faces and animals to hypnotic renderings of abstract patterns. In this unique assemblage of origami art, he presents color photographs of an inspiring collection of his models — the faces of a peasant and a prime minister, figures of a charging horse and a reclining camel, designs based on a clamshell pattern and a peacock's tail, and many other intriguing images.
Saadya also offers printed and video instructions to guide art students, figure sculptors, and origami hobbyists in creating their own models. His step-by-step instructions and diagrams explain how to reproduce ten of the faces, animals, and curved designs depicted in the photo gallery. In addition, a bonus DVD takes viewers into the artist's studio for demonstrations of folding techniques.
