About the Author

Origami master Michael G. LaFosse is a co-founder of the Origamido Studio, a learning center and design studio dedicated to the art of origami, and the only place in the world specializing in hand papermaking for the origami artist. LaFosse was prominently featured in the recent Peabody Award-winning documentary, Between the Folds. Richard L. Alexander co-founded the Origamido Studio, where he is the chief papermaker. Together, Alexander and LaFosse have created dozens of origami exhibitions, and more than seventy books, kits, and videos about paper and paper arts.


"Ultimate Origami for Beginners is not your average beginner's guide. It includes a substantial booklet with easy-to-follow directions for somewhat more advanced beginner items--an oxymoron I realize--but I say that because this is not the cup, the crane, the box. The booklet includes flowers, animals (baby dinosaur, seahorse), airplanes, and dollar folds. Not to worry, though, the instructions are thoroughly illustrated and described. Plus if you're really stuck, there's a DVD guide to take you through the steps one-by-one." --8asians.com blog

"The projects are geared towards beginners but not necessarily children. The kit actually includes a wide range of difficulty. [...] When the book instructions were difficult to follow, they watched the videos on the included DVD.
