  • Michael G. LaFosse and Richard L. Alexander
  • Robert J. Lang
  • Linda Mihara
  • Bernie Peyton
  • Richard Sweeney
  • And many more…
The stunning photos and brilliant essays in this book demonstrate why origami is now an international art movement—largely through the efforts and artistic genius of a few contemporary masters. The trailblazing efforts of Japanese artist Akira Yoshizawa elevated the paper folding to an art form by showing how subtle shapes and figures could be created from a single sheet of paper through a variety of non-traditional folding techniques.

Artists in other parts of the world—including the United States, France, England, China and Scandinavia—took Yoshizawa's cue and pushed these techniques further and further. The result has been the emergence of many new and surprising sculptural forms created through methods such as wet folding, curved creasing, tessellating and the application of alternative materials besides paper.

This book contains some of the most incredibly beautiful art I've ever seen. The only thing that would make it better is seeing an exhibition of the pieces in person.
