Amazon.com: Creating Origami: An Exploration into the Process of Designing Paper Sculpture (9781478229278): JC Nolan: Books

Thanks to Kickstarter, the book is out!


"If you've ever wondered how an origami designer thinks, or wanted more information on how to create new origami models yourself, this book is for you. In Creating Origami, J.C. Nolan brings you inside his origami design process in glorious detail, explaining his creative techniques for origami design. Nolan describes his experience of exploration, trial, error, and success, as he worked out the origami design process and documented his experiences during his growth in knowledge and expertise. The first 100 pages of the book are dedicated to his thoughts on the creative experience, strategies, tools and tricks of the trade, detailing instructions for origami bases and techniques used in the models. Included are more than 50 models that Nolan designed or was inspired by. His detailed instructions for the famous two-color Clownfish and Sea Anemone are still an amazing classic model for origami folders. Other models range in difficulty from simple to complex, represented by well-drawn diagrams, with models from famed creators Fred Rohm, Patricia Crawford, and others. After 15 years of being out of print, Creating Origami is a rare, sought-after classic, original copies of which are jealously guarded by lucky collectors who were able to obtain them upon its first release. Now, after a successful and well publicized re-launch campaign on Kickstarter.com, Creating Origami is once again available to a new generation of fans, folders, and designers. A must-have book for the technical folder or budding creator!"

Plane geometry and fancy figures; the art and technique of paper folding

A nice exhibition catalog, downloadable, from 1959. "In March 1959 Lillian Oppenhimer travelled to Japan to meet Akira Yoshizawa and later in the year she helped to organise "Plane Geometry and Fancy Figures", an exhibition of artistic and geometrical paperfolding at the Cooper Union Museum at New York. Legman sent his collection to New York and Yoshizawa's creations were once more displayed to an enthusiastic public in one of the great cities of the Western world."

Hydro-Fold: A Printer That Spits Out Easy-To-Make Origami

Hydro-Fold: A Printer That Spits Out Easy-To-Make Origami | Made with (and of) Paper | Scoop.it

"The Hydro-Fold printer is the handiwork of Christophe Guberan, a third-year design student at the Ecole Cantonale d’art de Lausanne (ECAL), which will be unveiling the project this week at Salone Internazionale del Mobile in Milan. The transformative magic centers on a simple tweak: Guberan replaced the regular ink in the printer cartridge with an ink-and-water mixture, which, when printed onto paper in various patterns, creates fold lines. As the paper dries, it contorts and retracts along the damp areas, creating three-dimensional, sculptural objects."
