Renowned origami artist Peter Engel first astounded origami enthusiasts and the lay person alike with his popular Origami from Angelfish to Zen. Since that book, published in 1989, Engel has gone through a personal change in his philosophy of origami, honed through decades of elevating what is often viewed as simple paper folding into a fine art.
In Origami Odyssey, Engel takes us on a journey to the edge of paperfolding, explaining his personal growth as an artist and how that has dramatically affected his designs since his first book. He provides instruction for 21 exquisite and original origami designs, including several that have been shown in galleries and museums throughout the world. Experienced folders will delight in the chance to grow as artists as they master the projects in this book, and new comers to origami will find the author’s journey so inspiring that they’ll be ready to begin an odyssey of their own.
