Each design is presented in three sections:
- the single molecule (the basic structure)
- a 2 by 2-molecule projec
- a 4 by 4-molecule project.
It’s a gradual process that enables the reader to learn by doing, with expert coaching all along the way.
Instructions for 29 models are included; almost all are original works by Ilan Garibi, one of the most well-known origami tessellators in the world—and one of the few fulltime origami artists. Garibi started to create tessellations ten years ago and since then has designed more than 100 unique models.
This book is focused on square-grid based tessellations and presents some of his most unique models. This book also includes photos of many of his art pieces—made from metal, wood, and more—based on these very designs. This is the second book of tessellations, introducing more original projects.
Hand-drawn diagrams by Franziska Schwarz, an origami artist, and a graphic designer bring life and volume to instructions on flat paper for the most comfortable learning experience for folders at every skill level.
