This book unravels the mystery of Geometry in Origami with a unique approach: 64 Polyhedra designs, each made from a single square sheet of paper, no cuts, no glue; each polyhedron the largest possible from the starting size of square and each having an ingenious locking mechanism to hold its shape. The author covers the five Platonic solids (cube, tetrahedron, octahedron, icosahedron and dodecahedron). There are ample variations with different color patterns and sunken sides. Dipyramids and Dimpled Dipyramids, unexplored before this in Origami, are also covered. There are a total of 64 models in the book. All the designs have an interesting look and a pleasing folding sequence and are based on unique mathematical equations.There has been a movement, over the past 15 years or so, of creating geometric shapes with modular origamiathe use of multiple sheets that are folded into ... Most of the instructions begin with sequences of folds that are not folds in the final model but rather are used to find particular landmarks, such as one ... Still, none of the models are too difficult, and even the most complex has fewer than 60 steps.
