Michael G. LaFosse is recognized internationally as a leading educator and author in the field of origami, and his remarkably complex works are exhibited in galleries and museums around the world. This latest edition of his landmark book, Advanced Origami, contains a new introduction by his co-author and noted paper artist Richard L. Alexander along with DVD video lessons for 15 original projects. Advanced Origami: An Artist's Guide to Folding Techniques and Paper provides clear diagrams and instructions allowing experienced paper folders to recreate the 15 original origami masterpieces. The folding methods are certainly challenging and advanced, but the results are both spectacular and rewarding. LaFosse offers the reader a vast and inspiring range of amazing objects and origami techniques in which to engage. The 15 intricate, lifelike projects featured include: * Toco Toucan * Cattleya Orchid * Horseshoe Crab * Praying Mantis * Hummingbird * Bats * Panther Mask * Sea Turtle * And much more! In addition to his wonderful models, LaFosse also provides tips on advanced folding techniques, advice for choosing and preparing the best paper for a given project, and recipes for making your own handmade papers. "15 projects, which are all natural history subjects, and LaFosse's signature models are included in this book. "Advanced" Origami doesn't necessarily mean complex models; in fact, some of the included models are rather simple, and most are intermediate to high intermediate. They are realistic, aesthetically pleasing models. Rather than focusing on complexity, this book is more about higher quality in work, such as by carefully choosing paper, preparing, and folding with special techniques. It is written for experienced folders who are seeking to advance their folding techniques...Overall, I am quite impressed at how much content this book offers. Any origami enthusiasts would be enjoy not only the 15 beautiful models but also the special techniques that aren't offered elsewhere. It seems like such a bargain at less than $20!" -Yuki's Origami blog
