About the Author

Tomoko Fuse is one of the world's leading origami artists, teachers and authors. She specializes in paper boxes and other geometric, three-dimensional designs. She discovered the art of paper folding at the age of seven and has since become known as the "Queen of Unit Origami." Her work has been exhibited around the world, including Paris Origami (Carrousel du Louvre, 1998), On Paper (Crafts Council London, 2002) and her solo show Yorokobi (Bauhaus Dessau, 2004). She has written over 65 books and in addition to teaching, folding and writing, she collaborated with designer Denis Guidone at Milan Design Week 2018 and was a featured artist in the Nova episode titled "The Origami Revolution" (February, 2017). Read about her work in Tomoko Fuse's Origami Art: Works by a Modern Master (Tuttle Publishing, 2020).


"Fuse, author of several books on origami, is considered a master of the art. (...) After a guide that shows the origami symbols and basic folds, the more than three-dozen projects are divided into three categories: simple boxes made using square sheets, modular boxes made using multiple square sheets, and modular boxes made using rectangular sheets. Even the most basic of the projects is impressive, and as Fuse points out, simpler designs are perfectly suited to show off specialty printed paper. The instructions are presented in a numbered sequence of visual symbols with occasional text accompanying, and each project lists the standard-size sheet for it. A terrific guide to learning or practicing origami." - Booklist
"Critique: Simply stated, Tomoko Fuse's Origami Boxes is an ideal introduction into the Japanese art form and craft of making origami boxes. Profusely illustrated and thoroughly 'user friendly' in organization and presentation, Tomoko Fuse's Origami Boxes is very highly recommended for personal and academic library do-it-yourself craft collections. (...) gift-giving will never be the same." - Midwest Book Review
"Tuttle has published an amazing lineup of origami books and kits but they've outdone even themselves with this one...Beautifully designed, the instructions include clearly-understandable visual diagrams for each project." -Retailing Insight
"Origami master Fuse's brilliant book is an almost wordless pictorial road map to creating palm-size paper boxes and containers. With clearly drawn instructions and photographed finished projects, the book is an excellent introduction to an ancient art form." -Publishers Weekly
"When I first saw this beautiful book I was intrigued! The pictures are gorgeous and inspiring...[it] has a couple of boxes that are good for beginners, and many that are for more experienced folders, which means it's a book that can grow with you and challenge your skills." -Castle View Academy blog
