Origami Design Secrets
Рецензия Gilad Aharoni: Wow. This is a fabulous book. Even if you only use it as a regular origami instruction book, it has diagrams for amazing models, such as the Western pond turtle with a patterned shell, and, of course, the detailed Black Forest Cuckoo clock. However, this is not a conventional origami book. It's much more than that.
This book gives us insights into "technical" origami design. The object of this approach to design is basically how to get a certain number of appendages of certain sizes out of a piece of paper, in correct relations to each other, and in the most efficient way.
Lang presents several methods, starting with more abstract ones, such as basic point-splitting, modifying existing bases, grafting and tiling, and advances to more "scientific" tools, using circle packing and tree theory to achieve more accurate results.
Each technique is illustrated with many examples, exercises to the reader, and fully diagrammed models.
Lang's writing is flowing and entertaining. No mathematical skills are needed to understand the methods presented.
This book has become a classic as soon as it was published.
