Art and Craft of Geometric Origami
With the increasing popular interest in mindfulness — and seeking quiet in the tumult of modern life — origami, the centuries-old practice of paper folding, has enjoyed a tremendous resurgence. With origins possibly dating to sixth-century Buddhism, the art of creating shapes from pieces of paper offers an appealing combination of calming concentration and the opportunity to create small works of art with our own hands.
This mind-bending collection of geometric origami includes 27 inventive shapes, from simple one-piece pyramids to beautiful and intricate starbursts, each carefully designed and explained with illustrated step-by-step instructions.
Includes 32 sheets of origami paper to get you started.
