Author(s): Kim Young-Man
This bestseller by paper-folding Master Kim Young-Man contains instructions for 100 items that can be folded from multi-coloured origami paper. These models of popular subjects, easy-to-make yet visually impressive, will delight enthusiasts of all ages; adults will find pleasure in the pastime and while children will cultivate their sensitivity to form and creativity as well as learn how to conceive complex shapes. The author explains the basic principles of the art of folding paper, concentrating on the discipline's didactic function (teaching geometry, for example) and the psychological benefits of the reciprocal exchange of experiences and information required by the art. Folding paper is an activity that develops a sense of colour and artistry in the very young. The discipline required to execute the steps also helps stimulate studiousness and thus plays an important educational function.
