The Art and Craft of Geometric Origami: An Introduction to Modular Origami (Origami Project Book on Modular Origami, Origami Paper Included)
DescriptionWith the increasing popular interest in mindfulness--and seeking quiet in the tumult of modern life--origami, the centuries-old practice of paper folding, has enjoyed a tremendous resurgence. With origins possibly dating to sixth century Buddhism, the art of creating shapes from pieces of paper offers an appealing combination of calming concentration and the opportunity to create small works of art with our own hands. This mind-bending collection of geometric origami includes twenty-seven inventive shapes, from simple one-piece pyramids to beautiful and intricate starbursts, each carefully designed and explained with illustrated step-by-step instructions. Also included are thirty-two sheets of origami paper to get you started.

About the Author
Mark Bolitho has been involved with origami for thirty-five years and is the former chairman of the British Origami Society. Having worked for many years as an accountant, he now devotes his time to origami, from creating and authoring books and kits to undertaking commissions for large-scale exhibitions.
"Bolitho (The Origami Home) combines paper-folding and geometry in this collection that includes both one-piece and modular pieces in a variety of shapes. Items range from the classic four-pyramid fortune-teller popular among school-age children to complex, multisided shapes. The modular designs feature anywhere from two to 90 pieces.. Still, the models themselves are fascinating, and there's plenty here to appeal to both amateur and experienced paper artists. VERDICT The combination of thorough, helpful instruction, geometry, and one-piece and modular models will appeal to crafters interested in trying something different with origami."
