Summary

Make world-class origami art in just 10 steps with this beautiful and friendly origami book.

Want to add a little Zen to your life? All you need is something to fold and the desire to express yourself! Renowned American origami artist and theorist Peter Engel features a completely original take on a very classic subject in this paper craft book, which features beautiful full-colored illustrations and easy-to-follow diagrams for 26 wide-ranging origami models.

A wide variety of finished origami designs, from fun to romantic to functional, awaits you. A series of mountains and valley folds leads to a majestic elephant with its trunk curled playfully to one side. Some well placed crimps and a final crumple bring a juicy strip of bacon to life; pair it with a sunny-side-up egg and you have a complete meal. Imagine presenting your loved one with a hand-sculpted, princess-cut origami diamond ring or surprising your closest friend with an elegantly contoured origami frame!
