This unique and wildly creative book by a Japanese origami master approaches the art of paperfolding from the perspective of mathematical and geometric principles. Jun Maekawa focuses on using rectangular paper to create a wide range of insects, leaves, plants, trees, animals, and fantastic creatures. Models include hummingbirds, dragonflies, peacocks, rabbits, toads, fish, maple leaves, ginkgo leaves, the golden beetle, a praying mantis, a tortoise, silver cranes, and trees.
An intriguing blend of art and science, this volume features both simple and complex figures, intended for intermediate-level and serious origamists. This is the first publication outside of Japan for most of these original models. Rather than the square-shaped paper familiar to American folders, all 33 models employ rectangular sheets of paper -- that is, sheets with an aspect ratio of Instructions for making rectangular origami paper are included.

I wish Western origamists would study diagram making from the Japanese as they have a lot to learn. Jun Maekawa is renown for his difficult origami but this book as most of his other books begins with easy Origami progressively getting more difficult. All the designs are based on the silver rectangle or 1:square root 2. A great little essay on rectangular papers through the ages up until now round off this most excellent of Origami books. This book would be very handy for people who do not have access to square paper but can get their hands on computer size document paper.
This book will keep you busy for a long time.. Some nice little paper stuff to figure out and fold. I did the butterfly and had fun. The instructions were good. Turned out nice. These models are all challenging but rewarding and educational. Diagrams and explanations are clear and thorough.
This book builds interpretation and performance skills, but it requires a degree of dedication. Absolute beginners may find many of the models very difficult. Consider buying A4 paper rather than cutting USA paper to size.
I bought this for my 13 year old son for Christmas, it seems to have easy to read instructions for making the origami figures. Go to Amazon. Back to top. Get to Know Us. Shopbop Designer Fashion Brands. Alexa Actionable Analytics for the Web. DPReview Digital Photography.
Genuine Origami - Jun Maekawa.pdf
Jun Maekawa. Like his counterpart in the U. Lang, Jun Maekawa approaches origami from the perspective of mathematical and geometric principles. In Genuine Origami, Maekawa takes readers, step-by-step, through the fundamentals of his method, beginning with the basics and guiding them through simple figures a mouse, an elephant, Santa Claus all the way up to such highly sophisticated models as his signature creations, the devil and the peacock. The 43 different models are grouped into five sections, including one chapter on the ABCs, three which present projects in order of increasing difficulty Simple, Intermediate and Complex , and one called Varieties of Origami, which reveals how to use different kinds of papers and techniques. In addition to the folding instructions and diagrams, Maekawa explains the mathematical theory behind each project.
