This unique book explains the key techniques of folding, such as pleated surfaces, curved folding and crumpling. An elegant, practical handbook, it covers over 70 techniques explained by clear step-by-step drawings, crease pattern drawings, and specially commissioned photography. This book will be accompanied by a CD containing all the crease pattern drawings.

This is one of those rare books, you stubble upon them by accident and and your life is changed a little. I would say it is an essential for artists and designers.
It has changed my practice and given me a wonderful understanding of most basic of mediums, paper.
A terrific book to own.
