    1. I thought that folding along crease lines is the only way to make origamis until I start exploring origami tessellation The twisting capability of the paper, as material, is elegantly used in origami tessellation In this new kind of origami, one uses a single sheet of paper to make twisted geometric forms that coalesce into beautiful symmetric patterns.Basically, there are two phases to make a model of origami tessellation 1 Preparing the grid which consists of creating small convex polygons spr [...]

    2. Unlike so many books with a superlative in the title, this one is at the level of awe inspiring A tessellation is when a design is repeated so that it covers at least in theory the plane Given that their religion prohibited the use of images, Islamic artists concentrated their creative energies on the creation of tessellations That artwork has great beauty and some of it is successfully mimicked by the paper constructions featured in this book.You cannot help but be amazed at the talent needed t [...]

    3. This book serves as a wonderful introduction to origami tessellations Distinct from traditional origami, tessellations are patterns that are created by making folds that are systematically repeated Before reading, I had only the barest knowledge of how tessellations are made, and what differentiates them from other approaches to paper folding Sure enough, though, once I opened the book and started to read, everything began to fall into place I have made eight of the models so far, and have just [...]

    4. Wow, amazing If you like origami, have itty bitty fingers and lots of time, this may be for you I would love to make something from this book, but I honestly don t know if I have the patience or the skill You first have to create a creased grid, and then start folding the patterns It looks pretty difficult Do a Google image search for origami tessellations to see what this book will show you how to do The reason this gets 4 instead of 5 star is because I think very few people will actually attem [...]

    5. An interesting twist BAHAHA OH PUNS on origami and paper crafting I didn t try to fold any of the patterns just studied them , so this is not the most complete of reviews As a fan of geometry and paper crafting and fractals and tessellations and mosaic , I look forward to trying some of these in the future.

    6. My husband has been learning simple origami, and I read a book recently about a guy who was beaten, suffered brain damage, and became a genius who sees the repeated fractal patterns of nature everywheretessellations These intricate folded paper designs are awesome, but I do not have the tenacity to try to learn how to make them.

    7. This book has made me fall in love with tessellating It has specific directions, pictures of the final product, and a crease pattern It also teaches you the basics of making tessellations Tessellations are tedious, yes, but you can t blame it in the book The book is wonderful

    8. There is far too much time that is necessary for preparing the paper with lots and lots of grid folds before you can do any actual art Three hours of careful folding and I was still unable to do the simplest project in the book, the Five and Four This book goes back to the library tomorrow.

    9. I have been doing origami for quite some time, but this book really gives a whole new perspective to folding for me It is an excellent work

    10. I loved this book Designs and instructons you can follow, strangely therapeutic and very rewarding after you have done your first one.
