"Japanese Paper Crafting is a re-release of the 2007 book for Tuttle Publishing by Michael G. LaFosse with Richard L. Alexander and Greg Mudarri. With paper crafting so hot, and washi practically a household name thanks to the popularity of washi tape, I can see why they would bring this one out again. The included history of washi and detailed instructions for making your own are informative, and the projects have an elegance due at least in part to the use of such gorgeous paper.”
"More than a book about origami, this is a book about paper. Michael G. LaFosse and Richard L. Alexander run Origamido Studio, where they make their own folding paper, and here they share their knowledge of making different types of Washi paper, all with photo illustrations. The projects in the book include mostly simple, traditional designs, chosen to show off the quality of the special paper. Several variations of connected cranes and Noshi, and a few practical folds. Some non-origami projects are also included, such as a vase-cover and a book-binding technique. The instructions are a combination of standard diagrams and photographs. The book is full of beautiful photos, and I highly recommend it to anyone interested in paper, folders or non-folders."
