Item Description...
An innovative approach to origami craft, polyhedron origami. introduces you into a new world of many-sided solid figures. This book is a comprehensive collection of polyhedron origami from tetrahedron to icosahedron. Each solid object is formed from simple folded units. Each process is illustrated with clear step-by-step diagrams for beginners. Start with simple works such as titles, bricks, prisms, pyramids, cubes and then follow the advanced courses, which include regular polyhedrons, tetrahedrons, octahedrons, dodecahedrons and so on. A variety of stars, flutter wheels and windmills are also presented as applications. It is not an easy task to make many units, but the joy and gratification are great when the works are completed. They reward the effort.

Great origami instruction  May 21, 2008
The directions in this book are very clear! It is an exceptional origami pattern book/instruction manual.
Fantastic origami book  May 8, 2008
We have used many origami books but this is the first that has consistently stayed on the kitchen counter for weeks at a time. We have origami tetrahedrons, dodecahedrons, and tetrahedral skeletons all over the house! My 8 year old son has gone origami crazy, all because of this book. The photos are gorgeous - colorful and full of inspiration. The illustrations are excellent - easy to understand, although some of the more complicated figures did take more than one try. Now we need a good source for bulk origami paper.

My son has tried using different size papers, experimented with variations on the instructions, and deconstructed the tetrahedron to see what folds it creates on the paper. He has discovered that the dodecahedron has 20 sides - it can be made with 10 tetrahedrons, each showing 2 sides out (I think - I haven't spent nearly as much time as he has on this stuff). He is still an early reader and has been able to do many of the designs just by following the illustrations and ignoring the written instructions.

Hands down, a wonderful book. Highly recommended!
Mixed feelings  Nov 9, 2007
I was a bit disappointed with this book. I feel that many of the models are "simple looking" and therefore, couldn't figure out what to do with them once I'd folded them. They seemed too simple to put on display anywhere I do, however, really like the star section of the book.

As normal with modular origami, be prepared to fold many units!

If you are not a beginner folder, I recommend Tomoko Fuse's Unit Origami: Multidimensional Transformations over this book.
Great - with some caveats  May 12, 2006
I'm not really an origami fundamentalist, but I prefer modulars that hold together without glue. Miyuki's models are wonderful, but many of them do require glue. I've overcome my aversion and enjoyed them greatly, but you should be aware of the fact that it takes a little more than simple folding for these!
Hands Down the Best  Jul 3, 2004
This is hands down the best book about making modular origami polyhedron I have ever encountered (I own about 6 or so books on the topic). The text does an excellent job of presenting three different ways (solid, skeletal, and outline) to make each of the five platonic solids. Towards the end there are also sections about how to make some stellated polyhedron and polygon tiles. Two things make this text wonderful for the beginning folder. Each fold is lucidly diagrammed and includes a well written explanation. The full color text is an added bonus. If you're interested in getting started as a polyhedron folder, this is the best place to begin. Happy folding. :)
