Robert Harbin's pioneering book provides a comprehensive introduction to this simple and inexpensive, yet creative and absorbing art form. It includes a complete history of origami (or the art of paperfolding), from its origins in the twelfth century. It provides information on the essentials of origami, followed by over 400 diagrams with clear and easy-to-follow instructions that show how to create a range of models.
The book's aim is to provide a new dimension in enjoyment, infinite and unrivalled in its capacity to make you relax and forget everything else.
This new edition has been revised by David Brill, of the British Origami Society, and includes new diagrams for the reader to follow to make new models.
