Galaxy of Origami Stars: 37 Original Stellar Designs Reviews
I gave this only 3 stars; if I was more accomplished I would rate it higher. As it is, I'm finding the directions hard to follow since I'm just low-intermediate by some origami standards. I was eager to get started when the book arrived, but was quickly disappointed that most of it is beyond my capabilities. More complete directions would certainly help. I have a couple origami books that include instructional DVDs, and with their help I can do every project in the book. Anyway, these stars are beautiful and don't look like they should be that complicated. I'll try it a bit longer, but may re-gift this book if I don't succeed.
some models are not new, but as usual, the all require one square of almost any kind of paper to get a wide range of stars. John some geometry to construct various regular polygons, then a basic twist technique for most of the 2-d stars. this includes alterations for duo colors. I would say all models fall in the intermediate range, from low intermediate to high intermediate. He also includes several 3-d stars which have appeared in some of his polyhedron books. Any lover of Geometry and origami will enjoy this!
Several people lowered their rating based upon the difficulty of the models. This was not advertised as a beginner book and it is not suitable for a school class of inexperienced folders. But it is a great origami book. The diagrams are definitely comprehensible to regular origami enthusiasts. Fun to fold stars from one sheet of paper!
Spent a few weeks folding half of the stars in the book, and I have to hand it to the author, some of the algorithms are great (like folding a heptagon from a square).
I'm not an origami novice; nor am I an expert. The instructions were difficult to follow. Almost like there were steps missing just to make the task more challenging.
I couldn't wait for this book to come out. seeing it is like witnessing the birth of an origami galaxy.
Lots of nice models in this book but it is not for the unsophisticated folder. Some models are pretty complicated.
My son loves this. It was a great book to bring more creativity to an already creative child.
