    One thought on “Kusudama Origami”

    1. I have to admit it's been years since I last did any origami but it's something I was always pretty good at and that I spent a lot of time doing when I was younger. I've never tried modular origami before though so when I saw Kusudama Origami available for review on netgalley I jumped at the chance of reading it. Just look at those images on the cover - I couldn't wait to learn how to create them!Modular origami requires you to make multiple identical pieces and then slot them together to create [...]

    2. As usual I received this book free of charge in exchange for a review. This time it was from Netgalley. Despite that generosity my scrupulously honest opinions follow below.In a nutshell, this book describes in great detail the art of Kusudama Origami, all those intricate spheres you see on the cover. The first few pages take you through the various types of folds and by page 15 we're starting right in on the first design.On the positive side, the photographs are brilliant and inspiring and the [...]

    3. Recibí una copia de netgalley para dar mi opinión.¡¡Debo reconocer que me ha encantado!! Aunque soy todavía muy principiante en el mundo del origami, me ha gustado mucho ver las formas que aporta para poder hacerlas, poque son realmente bellas.El libro sin duda explica muy bien los pasos a seguir, con lo difícil que suele ser encontrar buenas instrucciones para algunas figuras de origami como estas.Quizás algún día llegue a ese nivel, y la verdad es que me encantará probarlo, porque qu [...]

    4. The kusudama spheres in this book were amazing to look at. I do think these would take someone with more than a beginner's knowledge to be able to put these together. The author did a great job with explanations.Thanks to Dover Publications, via Netgalley, for allowing me to view this book

    5. I wasn’t really sure what I was expecting when I requested this book from NetGalley. I hadn’t touched modular origami in over 10 years, but there was something about the cover that drew my attention. When I started to read I was very pleasantly surprised. I loved this book, and look forward to trying all the patterns and configurations in the book. First thing is the sheer number of projects in the book. It has enough to keep me busy the rest of the summer! Second thing I loved was the intro [...]

    6. (ARC given by NetGalley)I confess I was always fascinated by Origami, and I had some idea that there was more to it than just "folding a piece of paper", after I had the pleasure of going to an Origami exhibit and seeing that there were pieces that were made by the assembling of tons of tiny parts.I usually don't do "technical books" for reviews (which is why this review isn't going into the blog, as it's, well, a fiction blog) but this book seemed far too tempting to resist.And I was right: the [...]

    7. When I was 10, I received my first origami book. I have fond memories of hours spent folding a menagerie of animals - cranes, frogs, even octopii! So, this book on kusudama Origami caught my attention.This style of origami is complex in that you need to fold multiples of the same structure in order to complete a full sphere. It is time consuming and a little tedious, but the results are beautiful and rewarding. These intricate spheres would be beautiful as decorations at a celebration, such as a [...]

    8. Kusudama Origami is an origami tutorial book filled with eye-catching, intricate designs. All of the 3D projects found within the pages look very impressive and would make beautiful decorations for an event.Each design is shown in a full colour photograph with a step-by-step guide showing how the reader can recreate it. Initially some of these diagrams can look quite daunting and therefore I’m not sure how well this book would suit real beginners as it may take a bit of practice to achieve goo [...]

    9. One of my favorite modular origami books. Most models are made from traditional squares (a few non-traditional). All models are ranked based on difficulty. There are several basic themes in the book, and variations based on those themes. Most models can easily be joined together without the use of glue.One of the fantastic things about this book is the great use of color change (or paper colored differently on either side).For some finished models please check out my origami blog: jennifershafle [...]

    10. Beautiful pictures, clear diagrams, but not for a beginner! At first glance, I was so excited to jump in and try Kusudama Origami for the first time. Once I started, I realized this is not a book for a total beginner. Still giving the book 3 stars because the instructions are clear and I am sure anyone with some experience will really enjoy the beautiful designs. I just need to start somewhere else!*ARC courtesy of Dover Publications provided by Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.*

    11. I've always been interested in origami, so I was really excited when the opportunity to read this book came along. There's just enough information in the beginning to get you started without it being too much. The instructions are pretty easy to understand and I was creating things pretty quickly. All of the pictures of the finished products looked amazing. I'm looking forward to trying some of the more difficult projects next!*I received a copy of this book through NetGalley in exchange for an [...]

    12. Lots of amazing and beautiful ideas included with decent instructions. I didn't feel that this is basic enough origami for beginners, in fact to really get it to work correctly you should probably be a more moderate or advanced folder. While the initial folding isn't overly difficult, because of the nature of it all having to fit together one does need some pretty straight folds, which I'll admit patient beginners could very likely doc from NetGalley

    13. This is a little too addictive. I have now tried my hand at making three of these and while not hard, they are not easy either. This is origami for adults. The authors use of illustrations, and even more important the extensive glossary at the front of the book that show you not just pictures and names of the folds, but how the folds are accomplished is a great help to those not origami experts.

    14. Very good book excellent explanations with diagrams good book for beginners Although designs are rather simplistic but very enjoyable
