A lucky horseshoe fish.  A ninja star from outer space. A tie-dyed flapping bird. And 54 more origami models on surprising paper. Here, origami is reinvented.

Mixing classically inspired and contemporary patterns, easy and challenging—what is origami but a brainteaser in paper? The Joy of Origami celebrates the art form’s deepest tradition of sharing with a completely fresh and jazzy feel.

The models range from birds and beasts to pinwheels and hats; the 100 sheets of paper included in the book are fun, bold, and unexpected.

What is the real joy of origami? The “Wow!” that comes after the final fold.
