We all experimented with cootie catchers and paper planes when we were little, and Jeremy Shafer takes us from those simple folds to completely unique designs that will entertain people of all ages and abilities. ORIGAMI TO ASTONISH AND AMUSE is divided into four sections: Origami Action, Symbols and Signs and Stunning Designs, Models from the Heart, and Origami for the Almost Deranged. Each section begins with models anyone can fold, and progresses to more complex projects. Imagine folding a piece of paper into nail clippers that really work, or a Swiss Army knife that actually opens, or a surfer on a wave that crashes when the surfer is slid forward…There’s no need to imagine-this is for real! Try your hand that our BABY BIRD ORIGAMI free project from Origami to Astonish and Amuse.
In Origami to Astonish and Amuse Jeremy Shafer has taken the art of paper folding in an entirely new direction. Over 400 Original Models, including such “Classics” as the Chocolate-Covered Ant, the Transvestite Puppet, the Invisible Duck, and Many More! Filled with entertaining models and folding ideas, ranging from amazingly simple to ridiculously complex, this is origami at its most fun and creative.
