Description
Inspired by traditional techniques, Sok Song captures the timeless spirit of origami in every modern model he designs. Inside, he shows how paper can be transformed into anything from an exquisite watercolor orchid to a wallet made from a subway map. These imaginative projects will teach you the fundamentals of origami as you create playful animals and other designs perfect for greeting cards, jewelry, and more.
SOK SONG's passion for origami transformed his self-taught hobby into an award-winning design business. His paper artistry has been featured in magazines including "Vanity Fair," "Marie Claire," "GQ," and "Vogue"; as contributions to other origami books; on TV on "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" and "America's Next Top Model"; and in museums including the American Museum of Natural History.
