Akira Yoshizawa Japan’s Greatest Origami Master Featuring over 60 Models and 1000 Diagrams by the Master

This collection of projects by the “father of modern origami” contains detailed instructions for 60 of the master’s original works.

Master origami artist Akira Yoshizawa was a true innovator who played a seminal role in the rebirth of origami in the modern world. He served as a bridge between past and present–between the ancient traditional craft and the development of origami as a contemporary practice–inventing new techniques and preserving the traditional Japanese forms. In fact, the notational system of diagrams widely used today to indicate how models are folded was developed mainly by him. Above all, Yoshizawa was responsible for elevating origami to the status of an art form.
