This book is: page for page: the same as Origami: 80 best-ever projects, also by Rick Beech.THE ORIGAMI HANDBOOK is great, with well set out step-by-step instructions that are clear and easy to understand.For those beyond the novice stage, it has intermediate to hard origami challenges.This is one of the best Origami books that I have ever used because of its easy layout and concise un-complicated instructions for young and old and covers a wide range of origami designs.It also has a section on serviettes - which includes the pixie boot napkin.If you are going to start Origami, this book is a fantastic starting point.
You should probably know that this book is the same (has identical content to) all of the other books by rick beech. This is the best single origami textbook I've ever had. I really like the fact that the instructions feature photos which contain appropriate hand position to perform the folds. This is the version of the book to buy. standard size, and hard cover.
This is probably one of the best origami books I've found in English.
I have had this book for a long time and it is a book I reference for most of my origami projects. I bought this one for a gift for christmas. It has a ton of classic models and has very simple easy to understand diagrams.
I was a little nervous when I saw the price of the book and that the description was pretty generic so there was no real telling if it was going to come marked up or not. It is in pristine condition, brand new really. The spine wasn't even cracked like it was never used or opened. Definitely a good purchase and prompt delivery.
This book is packed full of diagrams. I'd say about half of the models are very common and can be found in most beginning origami books, but the other half aren't as common. Most models are quite simple to construct, and there is a nice variety to the types of models in the book. You will find traditional classics, animals, people, flowers, toys, games, action origami, practical paper folds (such as page corners and pin trays), party tricks, decorative origami, and modular origami. The directions are all made of color photographs of each step as the model is constructed. I found the photos nice, but since there are no fold lines given on the model, it can get confusing sometimes.
Disappointed by the origami book selection at several stores, including Barnes & Noble, I found this perfect book on . Beech's instructions are clearly written and well illustrated. The huge list of figures ranges from beginning level to fairly complex. For example, some of my seventh-grade students focused on cranes, boxes, and lilies while others fashioned catapults and basketball hoops. I have not seen a better handbook for this art.
This is the book that got me into origami. I couldn't recommend it more for somebody who wants to begin origami. It contains many models suitable for the beginner, and some hard enough to aspire to. It has a great section "A Gallery of Origami Masterpieces" that I used to think were amazing. I still think they are great, but have a greater appreciation of what is possible with origami.
