The traditional art of origami has gone mainstream with origami folds popping up on fashion runways and in museum exhibitions. A testament to the amazing versatility of the craft today, this book is filled with clever paper projects sure to impress enthusiasts and casual crafters alike. In Crease + Fold, paper artist Sok Song presents 40 modern origami projects that transform a simple piece of paper into an astonishing array of paper sculpture, cards, home items, ornaments and wearable accessories. Many of the projects showcase ways of using recycled or alternative materials; some are life-size, such as an elephant that takes an extra set of hands to accomplish, but all adhere to the origami purist restriction of no cutting or gluing. From a rose fashioned out of a dollar bill to a wallet made from a subway map, Crease + Fold demonstrates that anything is possible just using simple folds.
