Trash Origami, Michael LaFosse and Michael Alexander
Fold your trash into a treasure of pleasure ! This book presents 25 fun and unique origami projects from the Origamido Studio but also from some of the world's best paper folding designers, including Nick Robinson, Herman Van Goubergen and Rona Gurkewitz.
The origami models are presented for the reader who may have little or no previous folding experience, but experienced folders will also be intrigued by the novel nature of the folds and the unusual material involved.
The accompanying DVD will make the folding process even clearer and aid folders of all levels in mimicking the authors' beautiful origami models. It will also serve as a guide to which everyday materials have the most folding potential and inspire readers to design and display their very own trash origami.
Get ready to look at the contents of your wastebaskets and recycling bins with a different sensibility. Many schools have less monney to purchase art supplies than in previous years, but Trash Origami will show how many scraps of paper previously destined for the trash or recycling bin can be reused for another art lesson and perhaps teach an important additional lesson about reusing much of what we throw away.
