Descripción del producto
Reseña del editor
With step-by-step diagrams, detailed instructions and over 70 photographs in vibrant full-color, internationally-renowned origamist and author Tomoko Fuse offers an innovative approach to origami based on assembling separate, multi-dimensional shapes into one structure.
Some of the shapes, like pyramids or four-sided boxes, are simple to master, even for a beginner. Others are quite complex and require much more experience and proficiency. Fuse uses a system to indicate the level of difficulty for each project with one, two or three stars, so the reader knows from the start, how challenging a project is likely to be.

I am currently working my way through all of the models in this book, and I am really enjoying the gradual way that Tomoko Fuse introduces new models. She groups obvious types together in the book's sections, and methodically explains (by text, diagram and picture) each unit from simple to complex variation. Instructions include the type/name of the structure, level of difficulty, size of the paper needed, number of each type of paper unit required, a three-dimensional diagram of the polyhedral structure (for more complex structures) and assembly diagrams that show how the pieces fit together. All of the instructional images are in color so it is easy to differentiate between front and back of each paper unit, and to tell the difference between units in the assembly diagrams.
This book presents reusable paper unit types that are creatively put to use in the models in a number of different ways. For instance, I like the way I can create colorful joints that add to the overall presentation of each piece. I especially like the "Various Methods of Assembling Double-Sided Hexagonal Rings" section where Fuse explains how to take the traditional polyhedral structures she has taught and extend their shapes creatively in order make new designs. In general, there are enough variations of each type in all sections that I do not feel like I am working through the drudgery of the same projects over and over as I have with some other books.
Overall, this is an excellent addition to the library of anyone interested in exploring polyhedron models with origami.
The modular pieces are relatively simple to fold. While the construction of such complex polyhedrons may seem a bit daunting at first, the inclusion of models containing relatively few pieces, (ranging from 12-30) are particularly instructive (and beautiful when complete).
A word to the wary folder: while these modules are easy to fold, modular origami often requires the inclusion of large numbers of individual pieces to create the beautiful works in the book. If you aren't particularly excited about folding a minimum of 30 pieces (and more often over 60), you may want to look into something else.
That being said, this is a GREAT book on modular origami construction.
Two little problems: (1) My book kind of fell apart after using it for about 2 weeks (the glue must have been bad), and (2) for some of the bigger models it's really hard to figure out how to put them together so that you don't end up with wrong colors (e.g. stars made of units in 3 different colors, and never having the same color next to itself).
