Editorial Reviews

Do people think Origami is for girls? I don't think I ever did but the arts and crafts section in any toy store is dominated by images of girls. This is unfair to our boys. There is nothing feminine or masculine about Origami. To me, it is an art form that requires a lot of mind-hand-eye coordination as your mind must direct your hands to take a 2D object and manipulate it to take space in the 3rd dimension. This especially rings true with the Geometric Origami set by veteran artists Michael G. LaFosse and Richard Alexander. While folding, you may notice that even the math phobic children can create folds that demonstrate anything from fractions to skeletal polyhedra. Eliminating math anxiety has never been more fun." -Jenn Choi, Forbes.com "
