Origami Dragons

In the early heydays of the second revolution of origami Tom Stamm, a devoted fan and practitioner of origami design, went through a rich period of exploration and creativity in the development of origami Dragons. Including his wonderful “Sea Serpent Dragon” and “Multi-Piece Sea Serpent” as well as 3 wonderful “Flapping Dragon” variations.For the first time the most memorable of these are published here with loving re-diagramming as well as two small works of my own which were inspired during the redesign. I loved these models as a kid and am thrilled to be a part of making them available again. – JC Nolan

Designs are interesting and different enough. In the paperback version I have there is the additional added puzzle of figuring out what order the steps are actually supposed to be in. Not sure if the Kindle version has the same issues. For instance the step order on the 2nd diagram (Sea Serpent Dragon) should actually be 1-6,19, 18, 17, 16, 15, 14, 13, 12, 11, repeat 18-11 on other side, 10, 9, 8, 7, then 20-58 in the printed order. Other than the horrible editing making a challenge, the designs are mostly intermediate level and are more for the interesting results and not to challenge the folder.

Instructions can be difficult to follow. Real pictures of the folds accompanying the instructional illustrations and origami notations would help over illustrated diagrams alone. The artist explains making it a goal to do the instructions without words and only through the diagrams, however, the right written instructions could still be helpful here.The actual pictures/completed origami dragons from the artist are remarkable to look at.

This book is full of amazing little oragami dragons that are really fun. I made one myself, it was a kinda hard, but I managed to do it with a little help from Dad.:)

I bought this book used. It was practically new with no damages whatsoever. I love how detailed and descripted the directions are in the book to make origami. They're is not a lot of different types to make. I'm very pleased with my purchase and service.

Interesting variations to the "Flapping bird" model. The drawings are precise so there should be no problem folding the dragons (Hopefully). Might need larger paper since the dragons' body require lots of mountain and valley folds.

Origami instructor of 40 years, this book is junk, a waste of time and money. The title is exciting, but thepamphlet, not a book, has impossible drawings without instructions. WITHOUT INSTRUCTIONS! No wonder it is so cheap to buy. It would be cruel to give this to my origami students and ask them what to do. Hopefully, most of them would smile wisely and bring this to the rubbish bin.

Cute concept/back story. Decent designs. Bad guide. Almost like illustrations left out to save space. I've completed them all, but not solely on guide. It took quite a bit of creative thinking and problem solving to sort out how a square folded on diagonal could magically become stretched squashed and folded as seen in next image.

If you want to learn how to fold a dragon, this is the book to get.
