Origami: Inspired by Japanese Prints
Discover the secrets of the art of origami. The magic of this unique and handsome book begins with the cover, which unfolds to reveal 48 brightly colored sheets of origami paper. Inside are reproductions of color woodblock prints by Japanese masters, which inspired the authors to create flowers, animals, kimonos, and much more, all out of paper. The covered spiral binding allows the book to lie flat, making it easy to follow the clearly illustrated instructions for each of the thirty-four origami projects. There is also historical information about each print written by a curator of Japanese art from the Metropolitan Museum. With a package this unique, you can tell a book by its cover! Steve and Megumi Biddle are well-known origami experts who have written numerous books on the subject and who have hosted a weekly origami program on cable television.
