Hardbook: 344 color pages

Product Dimensions: 21 cm x 26 cm
Tomoko Fuse is one of the world's leading origami artists. She has widely popularized the style of unit origami.
This book describes another of Tomoko's preoccupations: the Spiral. It's a lavish banquet: a feast for our eyes, our senses and our intellect. Tomoko Fuse's experimentation with folded paper spirals is prolific and inexhaustable. We can explore many of these experiments ourselves, thanks to here detailed diagrams and instructions in these pages.
In the final pages of the book, we see Tomoko at home in Mountains of Nagano, Japan. Thus, we are allowed a glimpse into her private world, and understand some of the sources of inspiration.

A collection of previously published spiral designs, but with a greater exploration for each form. The presentation and photography in this book is outstanding, and it is the most 'personal' creation I have seen Tomoko Fuse author to date.
