“Origami is the act of creative paperfolding,” states author Nick Robinson. “It’s always tempting to leap into a new hobby and try the most challenging or exciting project you can find. Often, however, that route leads to frustration, and, in the case of origami, lots of wadded up pieces of paper. it’s far better to begin with the basics and practice them as much as you can before moving on to the more difficult models.”
So starts “World’s Best Origami.” This book is unusual in that is goes a slow step by step in training the beginner on the intricate and basic folds of origami art. And then it infuses great beauty into the different patterns and models are you progress. I loved the instructions, and felt the basics were easy enough for parents to try with their children, as this is an art form for both adults and kids alike.
