Fold and display papercraft works of art with this intermediate to advanced origami book.

Adirondack animals, cephalopods and arctic marine mammals are just a few of the realistic and elegant origami models you'll be able to fold with this unique book. Origami Animal Sculpture offers a refreshing take on the endlessly fascinating field of animal origami paper folding. In this book, folders will find beautiful photos, clear directions and an instructional DVD that make the creatures in this new collection a joy to fold and display. Author John Szinger has put together expressive lifelike 3D origami with intermediate-to-advanced models of unusual animals and related objects.

This origami book contains:

  • 128 page, full-color book
  • 22 original origami models
  • Step-by-step instructions
  • Colorful diagrams and photographs
Origami folders will find that the sculptures they create are customized to exhibit the subjects' personality and attitude. Szinger's attention to detail is the hallmark of his work. He's been folding paper for most of his life, starting with paper airplanes at a young age. He devoured origami books at his local library and soon began experimenting with his own designs. Ten years ago, Szinger came back to origami after a long hiatus and began attending conventions, where he met other dedicated folders and was inspired to create his own original models. From these encounters, he began folding origami pieces for personal enjoyment, and to share with other origami makers.

Origami models include:

  • Foxy Fox
  • Brown Bear
  • Octopus
  • Giant Squid
  • Bull Walrus
  • Elephant Seal
  • Narwhal
  • Inchworm
  • Butterfly
  • And many more

In Origami Animal Sculpture, John Szinger illustrates the attention to detail that is the hallmark of his work. Szinger’s interest in origami began when he started folding paper airplanes as a boy and he began diagramming his own models as a way to share his art with fellow paper folders. Trained as an engineer and software developer, Szinger incorporates alternate geometries, including one-fifth, one-sixth, and polar or rotational-based symmetries, into his work to create gorgeous models that are sure to delight any animal lover.

I would give a 5-star rating on this book!  The models are pleasantly challenging and provide good practice for aspiring folders like myself, who need to work on difficult folding techniques, such as crimp and sink folds.

Sooo Fun!
By: Suzy's Artsy Craftsy Sitcom

Have lots of fun paper souvenirs leftover from that last trip?  This fun book gives you some creative ideas to display them!  Use those postcards, street maps, tickets and souvenirs and convert them into pretty art that brings back memories. Travel Origami: 24 Fun and Functional Travel Keepsakes gives you 24 easy-to-fold origami projects along with step-by-step instructions showing you how to fold your paper collections into special items you can wear, carry, hang on your wall, or give away as a special keepsake. My husband always collects maps and brochures of the areas that we travel to.  I’m thinking some of these great ideas could be turned into something fun like a refrigerator magnet!
