Review by Library Journal Reviews

In this collection, ten well-known origami masters present their interpretations of flowers in folded paper. Standouts include Derek McGann's gorgeous orange hibiscus, which is treated with water to make the petals ruffle like the actual flower; Delrosa Marshall's stunning bougainvillea, which captures the fragile nature of the plant's leaves; and Daniel Robinson's bleeding heart, which shows a stem of the plant in a variety of stages of bloom. Most of the artists use a variety of specialty papers or techniques to give their creations a realistic look and the complicated flowers are folded separately from the stems and leaves and then assembled. Each component is fully diagrammed with textual instructions and the book includes a guide to origami symbols. VERDICT This isn't a guide for beginners—most of the flowers have 20-plus steps and multiple components—but intermediate and advanced paper artists will appreciate the challenge, as well as the opportunity to try new materials and techniques.
