Description

Complex, stunning, and exceedingly popular, modular origami has taken the origami world by storm. Using basic geometry concepts and simple paper folding techniques, folders can turn multiple flat pieces of paper into a dynamic three dimensional model by deftly fitting the pieces together. From paper polyhedra to bristling buckyballs to ornate flower-like spheres, Mind-Blowing Modular Origami is a spectacular collection of paper crafting designs! In modular folding, multiple pieces of paper are held together by the tension of the other pieces, demonstrating the remarkable properties of paper-flexible and strong. The larger the model, the more base pieces required and the more complexity involved in putting the final project together. Author Byriah Loper pushes the limits of this art form with some of the largest, most complex geometric paper constructions ever assembled. "...a must-have for low intermediate to complex folders for its uniqueness, easy-to-understand directions, visual clarity, and creative mind-blowingness." -Origami USA's "The Paper" "It was soothing to fold each unit repetitively, and it was also a fun challenge to tackle the assembling, sort of like working on a puzzle. I got a better sense of how addicting modular origami can be. The diagramed instructions are clear and well explained, including the assembling parts. Basics and other resources are also covered. -Yuki's Origami blog "Loper's models take patience, persistence, and skill, and are best suited to experienced origami artists who are looking for a unique and eye-catching challenge." -Library Journal "This book lives up to its title - and is ideal for those who are up for a fascinating origami challenge. Congrats to Byriah Loper on his cosmic constructions!" -The Papercraft Post blog "Paper-folding enthusiasts and math fans will likely find this book a welcome challenge..." -Booklist
