Modular Origami Polyhedra

Front Cover
Dover Publications, 1999 - Crafts & Hobbies - 59 pages
3 Reviews
Step-by-step instructions and clearly detailed diagrams enable origamists to build over 35 different polyhedra from origami units. Fascinating models range from relatively simple modular cubes and a stellated octahedron to more advanced two-piece modules, a gyroscope, and a 14-sided cuboctahedron. Subjects-graded according to difficulty-will not only challenge devotees of the ancient Japanese art of paperfolding, but can also be used to demonstrate geometric principles in the classroom.

Review: Modular Origami Polyhedra

User Review  - Travis - Goodreads

So many cubes! My favorite form of paper folding. This is the best book I have seen to date to have cubes in it. A few involve scissors, which I disapprove of. But most are based on uncut squares. Read full review

User Review  - Cathy - Goodreads

Very technical, you must have at least some sort of background in origami before undertaking some (or rather most) project in this book. However, it is certainly a great resource for enthusiasts. Read full review
