Did you know the Chinese were actually the first to do origami, but they did very little before passing it on to the Japanese. The Japanese developed origami and made it into an art. Ori means folding, and kami means paper. When translated into English, the ‘k’ in kami became a ‘g’.
Filled with entertaining models and folding ideas, ranging from amazingly simple to ridiculously complex, this is origami at its most fun and creative. In Origami to Astonish and Amuse, Jeremy Shafer has taken the art of paper folding in an entirely new direction. With over 400 Original Models, including such “Classics” as the Chocolate-Covered Ant, the Transvestite Puppet, the Invisible Duck, and Many More!
