The Amazing Book of Origami: Jon Tremaine


The instructions include written directions and diagrams showing each action, plus an “action photo” showing hands doing the fold, so you get two ways of seeing what to do. It works. Mr. Tremaine’s folksy, easy-going approach shows in the text and his brief descriptions and history of some of the models. It’s obvious that he enjoys his art and enjoys teaching it as well. He also suggests types of paper and often paper sizes – so you don’t end up trying some models with paper that turns out to be too small. The symbols, folds, and bases used in the book are all well presented.

When you start doing origami and become bored with the really easy stuff, this is a great book to get you going onto more interesting and challenging things. I now feel ready to try some of the models in my other books that just didn’t make sense before I worked through Tremaine’s book.
