Advanced Origami: An Artist's Guide to Performances in Paper
Buy from: Amazon. Not only does this book contain diagrams for Michael LaFosse's fantastic masterpieces I've been waiting for the Toucan diagrams for years! Starting with general tips for folding, and discussing wet-folding, back-coating, using Methyl Cellulose for wet-folding, making tissue foil, how to choose the right paper for the job, and making special paper for origami from scratch! All with full-color photographic illustrations. For paper-making, however, I recommend Origamido's video "Paper Making" which goes into the process in much more depth. The book also has paper "recipes" for several types of papers for origami, including those favored by Robert Lang and Satoshi Kamiya.
By Michael G. Please check the audio and video specifications of your ebook reader before downloading any additional content. Our designing and authoring efforts at Origamido Studio have resulted in more than 75 publications to date, and if one were to ask Michael which was his favorite, he would not hesitate to say Advanced Origami.
