Reviews by great origami masters :
I really like this book! Duo origami has a long history, but for many years it was not much more than penguins and pandas. It received a major boost from John Montroll’s landmark book, “Origami Inside-Out”, and since then origami artists have continued to show great creativity in exploring duo-colored subjects. But the designs here take the genre to an entirely new level; the works are clever, yet readily foldable, and display both beauty and inventiveness.

Mi Wu shares some insight into his very deliberate and color-change specific design methods. His essay "Design Secrets" is a fascinating read. His concepts are written in a logical way that is sure to inspire many new and existing designers to use in their own bags of tricks.
This is a fascinating book offering a new slant on two-colour origami design. The author explores many avenues to achieve dramatic colour changes in both flat and three-dimensional designs. He presents the background as well as his principles for this intriguing area of origami, which any enthusiastic folder should carefully study.
When taking color-change into account, origami designing leaps to another level. It only took Mi Wu 5 years to dig deep into this subject. Each work is a painting done by folding paper. Since the first time I saw his works, I have been wondering “How could he achieve that level?, How can I learn that magic?” Now I have my answer by reading his book: “Duo-color origami”. In the book you will find the secret behind the miracle thanks to the creator’s generosity in providing thoughtful articles about his process.

Seeing his models for the first time a few years ago left me dumbfounded. The designs have compelling folding sequences with little repetition among the entire collection of origami figures. The difficulty level for the book as a whole is fairly high and the author dedicated 12 pages to explain in a fair amount of detail how he goes about designing color-changed origami.
Color change is one of the best resources in the designer's arsenal to make any model more attractive. Mi Wu has elevated the concept to awesome new heights making the bi-colored patterns the very topic of this book. How the author comes up with such complex arrangements of shapes in origami is quite baffling. The alchemy of his methods unfolds before our eyes in a whole chapter devoted to unveiling and explaining the secrets of color-change design. Mi Wu's book is one of the most alluring of the last few years.
