Publisher's Description

Make fun and functional origami out of your spare paper with this easy origami book.

Don't dump your wastepaper into the garbage—it's time to fold! World renowned origami artists and award-winning authors Michael G. LaFosse and Richard L. Alexander show you the way with Trash Origami. This origami book presents unique and fun projects from their Origamido Studio and from some of the world's best paper designers, including Nick Robinson, Herman Van Goubergen, and Rona Gurkewitz.

The origami models are presented for the reader who may have little or no previous folding experience, making it a great origami-for-kids book and an effective way to learn origami. However, experienced paper folders will also be intrigued by the novel nature of the folds and the unusual materials involved. The origami designs are made from old calendar pages, candy wrappers, envelopes, newspaper, postcards, paper grocery bags and more. The accompanying DVD video tutorial will make the folding process clearer and aid folders of all skill levels. Also provided is a guide to everyday materials that have the most folding potential leaving readers inspired to design and display their very own "trash" origami.

This origami book features:
  • Full-color, 95 page instructional book
  • 25 unique origami projects
  • Projects from top paper folding designers
  • Clear, step-by-step directions
  • Paper folding techniques and tips
  • Accompanying instructional DVD
Get ready to look at the contents of your wastebaskets and recycling bins with a different sensibility. You'll never need to buy expensive origami paper again!

Origami projects include:
  • Photo Cubes
  • Candy Wrapper Butterflies
  • Interlocking Flower Petals
  • Custom-Bound Books
  • And many more…

Author Bio

Michael G. LaFosse has been an origami artist for decades, and is internationally regarded as a leading authority and master of the art. The author of many books, kits and videos, including Money Origami, Michael's work has been shown in museums and galleries around the world.

Richard L. Alexander, co-founder of Origamido Studio, has produced much of the handmade Origamido paper featured in the works of dozens of origami masters, and has designed several origami commercial and fine art exhibitions.

Publisher's Weekly

In a fun twist on an ancient art, the authors present a selection of paper-folding projects that use old envelopes, potato chip bags, and even magazine subscription cards instead of the usual origami paper. Each project is presented with full-color photos followed by a clear chart using standardized origami symbols that show exactly how to fold the piece. An accompanying DVD provides even more instruction, especially helpful for readers who learn best by watching. Projects include a candy wrapper butterfly, a crown towers and jumping frog game, photo cubes, snack bag wallets, and elegant boxes and envelopes. The "curler unit ball" project is a standout; it is a truly gorgeous, complex creation. While all of the projects are ingenious, some are more attractive than others; trash is trash, after all. But the low price point, accompanying DVD, and green tilt should help it sell well with crafters. Photos. (Oct.) Copyright 2010 Reed Business Information.

Editorial Reviews

"A fun, instructive guide showing how to turn trash into origami." —Architectural Record
"In this colorfully illustrated book using heavyweight glossy sheets, 25 different origami productions are clearly explained, diagrammed, and photographed. While the patterns presented are cleverly attractive, the novelty exploited in this volume is the use of recyclable raw materials in place of the traditional origami paper."— Sacramento Book Review
