Kawaii Origami

Kawaii Origami is a new colorful tutorial guide for origami with definite 'cute factor'. Written by Chrissie Pushkin of Paper Kawaii blog/youtube channel, it includes 25 tutorials and more general instruction for traditional folded projects.

Due out 2nd April 2019 on Quarto's Race Point imprint, it's 128 pages and available in paperback and ebook formats.

The book is set up in a logical and accessible manner. The introductory folding instructions are very basic (half a page), but the tutorials are laid out in roughly increasing order of difficulty. The projects, if followed more or less in order, should present no difficulty for a beginner. They are all really appealing and cute.

The paperback version of the book includes 50 sheets of paper. The only thing which is missing (in my opinion) is any sort of index or supplies/links page. A quick google or ebay search will provide online suppliers aplenty as well as a really comprehensive list of resources on the author's website, so it's not a crippling defect in any way.

This would make a great school library or classroom art resource for all ages. Some of the projects would be accessible and enjoyable for younger kids also.   I could see this being a great crafty present also.

Appealing, cute, well presented, fun.

Four stars.

Disclosure: I received an ARC at no cost from the author/publisher for review purposes.
