Origami Collection

Origami Collection is a really nice traditional tutorial manual *with* origami paper (physical edition) by origami master Kazuo Kobayashi. Originally released in 2012, this edition is 128 pages and available in softcover paperback.

These are beautiful, colorful, and well sculpted folds. There are variations on classics and new sculptures as well. There are 32 in all and they range from simple to advanced. All are pictured in color and all have folding diagrams in the line-drawn Japanese traditional style.

The book is written in Japanese and English. I don't read Japanese, but I'm told it's well written. The English is...whimsical, but fully understandable.

This would make a lovely gift for an origami learner or enthusiast. It would also make a nice weekend "lockdown" activity at home for family time.

Five stars. Really pretty sculptures.

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