Origami from Angelfish to Zen
In this extraordinary book, Peter Engel, one of America's most celebrated origami artists, explores the secrets of Japanese paperfolding and explains how to create complex animals and objects from simple squares of paper.
The book begins with a clear and concise introduction to the terminology and basic techniques of paperfolding. Then, in a fact-filled exposition of origami's history and theory - including an extraordinary interview with Japan's legendary master, Akira Yoshizawa - the author, a writer and architect, explores origami's links with mathematics, art, philosophy, and nature.
