Origami Masters Bugs

Origami Masters Bugs: How the Bug Wars Changed the Art of Origami, from Race Point Publishing. The 184 page hardcover includes instructions for 12 amazing models. Sherry Gerstein gives a fascinating introduction on the transformation of the ancient art. From only a few standard bases handed down orally, til the mid 20th century when the creation of diagrams, symbols and crease patterns led to the spread and eventual worldwide explosion of origami, which continues to this day. Beautifully illustrated and diagrammed by Marcio Noguchi. Large, bold, and detailed diagrams show you step-by-step how to turn simple pieces of paper into complex bugs, without the use of scissors or glue. Origami Masters Bugs offers the unique opportunity of learning from some of the world's most talented origami artists. Practising artists offer inspiration and challenging folds. The Luna Moth has the most steps at a staggering 201! The two dollar folds have the fewest steps at 29. Five crease patterns are also included. A striking book. Get your copy below! Also in the series, Origami Master Class Flowers.
