Folding Paper: The Infinite Possibilities of Origami - Hardcover Book
Thanks to pioneering masters such as Dr. Robert J. Lang, origami has transcended its humble roots as a traditional Japanese paper craft to take a place among the global fine arts. In Folding Paper: The Infinite Possibilities of Origami, Dr. Lang and Asian art curator Meher McArthur chronicle origamis remarkable evolution and showcases the widespread applications of paper folding solutions in the fields of contemporary mathematics, engineering, design, and the international peace movement.
Based around a groundbreaking museum show by the same name, Folding Paper features the work of more than forty leading origami artists from around the world, including Brian Chan, Erik Joisel, Erik and Martin Demaine, Tomoko Fuse, Daniel Kwan, Michael LaFosse, Jeannine Moseley, and Akira Yoshizawa. Combining Dr. Langs and McArthurs illuminating narrative history with lavish color photographs of more than sixty breathtaking works—from Joel Coopers haunting Cyrus mask to Linda Tomoko Miharas delicate Crane Cube to Eric Joisels lifelike Pangolin model—Folding Paper is an enthralling introduction to the contemporary art of paper folding.
