Birds In Origami

2019 – 2 languages

This is another project with NuiNui Publishing, with whom I have written several books. I’m always impressed with their willingness to accomodate the author’s design elements and to give care and attention to the layout as well as the contents. Most books require me to fill a specific number of pages, but NuiNui work the other way round, they use as many pages as the book requires, so there is no need to compress images or diagrams to fit on a page.

The paper enclosed in the box is bright, thin and crisp. As is the current trend, they are brightly patterned on one side and a plain colour on the other. Maybe not realistic, but eye-catching ;)

There are many origami birds in existance, but I tried to select those that were less well known, including designs by Akira Yoshizawa, David Brill, Edwin Corrie, Eric Vigier, Hadi Tahir, Kunihiko Kasahara, Lee Armstrong, Paul Jackson & Robert Lang

Available in French or Italian.
