Kazuo Kobayashi is the director of one of the largest origami clubs in Japan - The Ochanomizu Origami Center (a nationally recognized NPO). In the 1800's Kobayashi's great-great-great-grandfather founded the Origami Center and ever since taking charge of the Center Kazuo has written dozens of books on origami while being an international ambassador for the craft.
It is well established that with little more than a bit of creativity and some paper, magical beautiful things can be created through Origami. So in Vertical's next crafts-by-paper book, we turn our attention towards origami fauna.
With the 64 patterns featured in Origami Flowers paper-crafters can create beautiful bouquets to brighten up lives and to entertain young minds. The patterns in Origami Flowers are organized by season, so crafters can always have the appropriate blossoms for every occasion. Flowers are also known to have a language of their own, so Mr Kobayashi goes into detail about what the various flowers represent providing an educational element to this already fun hobby.
