Nick Robinson’s Beginning Origami Kit: An Origami Master Shows You how to Fold 20 Captivating Models

We rated this book:


Is simple origami an oxymoron? Is it an art form reserved for those blessed with a patient disposition? Or for those not identified with the term klutz? The colorful presentation box invites a big sigh of relief upon learning that Nick Robinson’s three-piece Beginning Origami Kit defies the naysayers. The booklet, complemented by a short video, colorful paper squares, and twenty designs, promises to be a pleasurable challenge.

Without wasting words, Robinson’s introduction describes designs he has perfected over thirty years, from simple to complex, realistic to caricature, geometric to organic. And if some sound tricky, watch the video, turn the page of the booklet, and follow the basic steps, from choosing paper to folding it.

More reliable than the paper plane that never quite flies, the techniques go hand-in-hand with the author’s philosophy that origami is a way to develop friendships. It makes a peaceful diversion from television and computers for parents to craft alongside their children. While little kids are absorbed folding a star or heart card, older siblings can create the elephant or Styracosaurus, even the wistful Buddha’s head.

Nick Robinson has created over two-hundred original designs, written many books, and demonstrated his craft in origami exhibitions in several countries as well as on television. Many beginners will wish to follow his path as their confidence and satisfaction develop.
