Start your review of Origami Omnibus: Paper Folding for Everybody Write a review Shelves: origami I have great nostalgia for this book, back when I was in high school and went from a passing interest in folding the occasional crane or flower to a real passion for paper folding, this was the first book I bought for myself. That might have been a mistake because even though I folded a ton, I was still very much so in the beginner stage.
Years passed and I still folded on occasion, but for the most part I had moved on to other crafts, until about three years ago where I re-discovered my love of origami. Thanks to more patience and maturity I no longer look at a complex design and throw my hands up in frustration, I have the discipline to work things out. What my longer winded rant is getting down to is, this book is a huge inspiration to beginners, even if most the things went over my head at the time.
It is not a book that holds your hands through the folds, it expects you to give up the fear of failure and try a design until you perfect it. It is an origami book designed more for middle of the road folders and more advanced paper lovers, dabbling in the philosophy of origami and the art, more than just the fun of folding. There have been new books that have come into my life that I would say are my favorites pretty much anything by Tomoko Fuse but this book will always have a special place in my collection.
Even if the spine always cracks in the middle really, both copies I have owned and ever one I have seen at libraries all crack! Some folds are very difficult, and I wish there was a teacher, who could help me with them. This book has complete instructions for some models, and others the author leaves the finish to the reader, encouraging thought. This kind of thought is brain food, but I need more help some times.
Jul 21, Jenn rated it it was amazing Another great origami book. Kunihiko Kasahara does a great job of putting a wide range of origami patterns into his book. From basic to master folds, this book has something for everyone. I highly recommend this book as well. Dec 24, Eve rated it it was amazing Awesome book for Origami fans. It has hundreds of projects and I love the chapters on Polyhedrons and Cubes. Not for beginners.
