Origami Animal Sculptures
Adirondack animals, cephalopods and arctic marine mammals are just a few of the realistic and elegant origami models you'll be able to fold with this unique book. Origami Animal Sculpture offers a refreshing take on the endlessly fascinating field of animal origami paper folding. In this book, folders will find beautiful photos, clear directions and instructional videos online that make the creatures in this new collection a joy to fold and display. Author John Szinger has put together expressive lifelike 3D origami with intermediate-to-advanced models of unusual animals and related objects.
Origami folders will find that the sculptures they create are customized to exhibit the subjects' personality and attitude. Szinger's attention to detail is the hallmark of his work. He's been folding paper for most of his life, starting with paper airplanes at a young age. He devoured origami books at his local library and soon began experimenting with his own designs. Ten years ago, Szinger came back to origami after a long hiatus and began attending conventions, where he met other dedicated folders and was inspired to create his own original models. From these encounters, he began to fold origami pieces for personal enjoyment and to share with other origami makers.
