Simple Origami Book and Sample Projects

I'm excited to feature a new book that makes origami simple... wait, that's actually the title in reverse! When Simple Origami was introduced to me by the Director of Marketing and Publicity at Search Press North America, I learned it was originally published in French by Adeline Klam, the owner of a gorgeous paper store in Paris. Adeline has conducted paper crafting courses for years and is known around the world for her paper creations and the decorative papers she sells.

I was told, "The book is a delight and was a bestseller in French before Search Press secured the rights for the English version. The unique thing about Adeline's book is the detailed step-by-step photos of how to do origami – so different from other origami books which mostly feature drawings. Her designs are delightful and completely achievable for any level of expertise."

Careful instructions and hand-drawn illustrations make it easy for children as young as eight to create folded paper objects and animals. That said, you don't need to be a child to enjoy origami!

 

 



SAMPLE PROJECTS
