Too hip to be square, Geometric Origami takes the art of paper folding to stunning new heights.
A sophisticated new origami kit for advanced paper-folding enthusiasts, Geometric Origami takes paper art to spectacular new levels. Fifteen intricate paper projects use specially designed strips that come with the book and include a tetrahedron, hexahedron, octahedron, dodecahedron, icosahedron, truncated tetrahedron, cuboctahedron, icosidodecahedron, rhombic triacontahedron, snub dodecahedron, zonohedron, and buckyballs. And don’t worry there are even a few pronounceable shapes like the egg and a geometric bracelet, plus more surprises. This beautifully designed kit gives a new perspective on geometry and the world of origami and is great fun for the entire family or the perfect gift for a math professor.
Faye Goldman has been doing origami for over 50 years. She was attracted to origami by its ability to demonstrate mathematical concepts and be beautiful at the same time. Her love of mathematics and geometric constructions is mirrored in her modular forms.
Heinz Strobl, the creator of Snapology, the technique of folding used in this book, has labeled her "the ambassador of Snapology." She has taught Snapology around the world. Exhibits of her work have been made in Singapore at OSME^5 (Origami in Science, Math and Education), and at the national conventions of Centerfold, PCOC, and OrigamiUSA.
She lives outside of Philadelphia and is the leader of the Greater Philadelphia Paper Pholders, a regional group of folders dedicated to sharing their love of Origami.
