Insects in origami

€8,45 €16,90

Since the dawn of origami, the ancient Japanese art of folding paper, insects have been part of the origamists' repertoire. Traditional folding techniques lend themselves well to their shapes: the long and tapered fins typical of the classic starting shapes well represent the appendages of insects.

The models collected in this volume have rather simple shapes, to allow as many people as possible to approach these subjects. To create the basis for some of them, the author took inspiration from old cartoon drawings, thus giving the insects a very cute look.

The volume contains 20 origami pieces in the most varied shapes and colours: from the ladybug to the scorpion, from the dragonfly to the caterpillar. Also included in the book are 120 sheets of high-quality detachable paper with a vast choice of colors and decorative patterns that enhance the shapes and lines of these splendid models. Each of them is accompanied by simple and clear diagrams with detailed instructions, as well as a QR Code and a link to access the video tutorial with the entire folding process.

Video tutorials downloadable via QR code or YouTube link.

Marc Kirschenbaum, born in 1969, began folding paper at the “venerable” age of three, when other children were still scribbling. His skills as an origami took a leap forward when he was ten years old: it was then that he discovered the association that is now known as OrigamiUSA, of which he would become an important collaborator in adulthood. Since the 1990s he has been Managing Director of the publications committee and an active member of the Board of Directors. For Nuinui he curated the Origami collection.
