Origami Design Secrets: Mathematical Methods for an


Origami Design Secrets: Mathematical Methods for an Ancient Art Robert J Lang, one of the worlds foremost origami artists and scientists, presents the never before described mathematical and geometric principles that allow anyone to design original origami, something once restricted to an elite few From the theoretical underpinnings to detailed step by step folding sequences, this book takes a modern look at the centuries old art of origami Alright The man easily surpasses the book and its content just check out his website and work in the medical supply and air bag engineering fields And then read The People of Paper. I feel that this book has left me with a deep understanding of all of these silly, seemingly random folds I ve been doing for decades I get it now, I might not be able to design my own arthropod, or to do the math in the book, but I understand the principles and that leaves me inspired and with a lot of room to become a better origami folder.This book is extremely dense By the last two chapters, I simply had to skip reading some of the extremely complex and math based solutions to complex fold I feel that this book has left me with a deep understanding of all of these silly, seemingly random folds I ve been doing for decades I get it now, I might not be able to design my own arthropod, or to do the math in the book, but I understand the principles and that leaves me inspired and with a lot of room to become a better origami folder.This book is extremely dense By the last two chapters, I simply had to skip reading some of the extremely complex and math based solutions to complex folds, since there was no use trying to remember that unless I was designing my own model at the time But the first several chapters cover incredibly useful tools I m also now able to better visualize how a crease pattern will collapse and what could come out of it.If you like folding complex models, and feel like you want to understandof how these shapes come to be, instead of simple step by steps to arrive at a final form, this book is a must I feel tiny after reading it, it s a huge world of extreme complexity that I ll never master, but I can at least enjoy knowing a few of the key secrets Excellent how to s and theory on thetechnical aspects of origami design There s really nothing to add.Some of the designs are less than fascinating, but this is not a diagram book The designs are to show techniques.Some of the designs ARE incredible though.
