Book Review: Folding Techniques for Designers, by Paul Jackson

With 30 years of origami experience, one of my first concerns in reviewing Paul Jackson's newest book Folding Techniques for Designers: From Sheet to Form is the fact that origami is a 3D art. Translating 2D instructions into form is no trivial matter. Like Ikea instructions, origami diagrams are a language into themselves. This book is the distillation of years of teaching this material to design students. To get some practical benefit from it, I would suggest that you spend at least several hours, playing with the forms and techniques introduced here.

The page paperback book gives step-by-step instructions for creating 3D paper forms through photographs, diagrams and drawings. This competition is now closed.

All designers fold. That is, all designers crease, pleat, bend, hem, gather, knot, hinge, corrugate, drape, twist, furl, crumple, collapse, wrinkle, facet, curve or wrap two-dimensional sheets of material and by these processes of folding, create three-dimensional objects. These objects will perhaps not be origami-like in appearance, or the folding may only be a detail, but most will nevertheless have been folded - wholly or in part - in some way. Since almost all objects are made from sheet materials Such as fabric, plastic, sheet metal or cardboard , or are fabricated from components used to make sheet forms such as bricks - a brick wall is a sheet form , folding can be considered one of the most common of all design techniques. Paul Jackson is the author of over 30 books on paper arts and crafts and three on pop-ups.
