Origami Boxes

Origami Boxes is a collection of tutorials for containers bundled with 200 sheets of origami paper. Released 15th April 2020 by Dover, it's 256 pages and available in paperback format.

The tutorials are all accessible and the drawings are very clear and well illustrated and concise. The difficulty of the projects range from beginner level to more advanced. This is an anthology collection of 8 tutorials representing 7 origami artists. It should be noted that the actual instruction book is 56 pages, the 256 page count includes the 200 sheets of bundled origami paper.

At the very beginning of the book are the symbol explanations and the short tutorials for the traditional folds.  This will help complete newbies to be able to follow the later tutorials.  There are (in my opinion) none of the pieces in this book which would be beyond a keen beginner's abilities with a generous dose of patience and practice. 

 Dover publications has long been a standard bearer for beautifully illustrated well made crafts books.  This one is no exception.  Everything is top notch. This would make a perfect gift for both enthusiasts and origami-curious beginners.

In fact, though I received a free e-book copy of this book for review purposes; I've already purchased a copy for my origami mad daughter.

Four stars

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