Publisher Comments:

Origami-the art of paper folding-is a traditional Japanese pastime that is enjoyed all over the world. The author of this book, Kunihiko Kasahara, is recognized as one of the world's best origami artists, and travels worldwide doing demonstrations and presentations. The remarkable popularity of origami, combined with the experience and talent of Mr. Kasahara, makes this collection of projects a much-anticipated arrival for beginner and experience origami enthusiast alike. The projects featured show both traditional Japanese origami and also Kasahara's latest cube art technique. Other projects feature building block-style units, beautiful boxes that look like flowers, snow crystals, and much more.

About the Author

Modern origami pioneer Kunihiko Kasahara studied broadcasting at Nihon University's College of Art, where his interest in origami began. His first book, Origami Book for Mother and Child (Seiko-sha), was displayed at the Japanese pavilion of the Osaka Expo in 1970, and was later packed into a time capsule that will be kept sealed for 5,000 years. His latest achievement, the unique "cube art" introduced in this book, is designed to reveal the artistic beauty in geometric figures. He lies in Kanagawa, Japan.
