Synopsis

Synopsis

Foolproof origami—now in paperback! More than 30,000 copies sold



Love origami, but frightened off by those strange dotted lines and shaded areas that make it seem like a bizarre geometry exercise? Absolute Beginner’s Origami calms those fears, using a remarkable three-step system and step-by-step full-color photos to guide readers into the basics of folding, through intermediate steps, and on to putting it all together to make real origami. Twenty enchanting designs are presented in three easy-to-follow stages: first, bases and folds. Next, combining bases and folds and learning to interpret those line drawings. Finally, learning to fold origami paper into real, elegant origami animals and objects: butterflies, swans, dogs, and more! By the end of the book, readers will understand how to read those line drawings and explore the wonderful world of origami with excitement and confidence.




• Color photos and clear three-step method make anyone into a foldin' fool
