Origami For Interpereters
Download a sample of the numeric version here!
Román DIAZ is the one of most talented origami creators to have emerged in recent years. In this, his first book, he presents his most beautiful models. Clear, precise, and detailed diagrams will lead you step-by-step through the folding of each figure. Within the reach of most, the models are classified from the simplest through to the most complex. From the cockerel to the elephant, and from the panda to the crane, learn to fold lifelike and astonishing animals.
Roman Diaz compares origami to a musical composition, where the creator is the "composer", and the folders are the "interpreters", who can, and should, add their own personal touches to the model, beyond the drawn diagrams. The first section of his book contains invaluable information for the interpreters, including tips for selecting the right kind of paper for job, an overview of folding methods, and a lengthy discussion about the final touches that can be applied to a model after completing the last step of a diagram.
Diaz is a Veterinarian by profession, and his love to his patients is evident in each of the creations in this book. His animals are complex and detailed, yet retain a certain liveliness and naturalness about them. My favorites are the tiger and lion heads, and, of course, the cat.
Each model comes with recommendations from the author about his favorite paper type and size for the project.
With excellent content and superb production quality, this book is highly recommended.
