Japanese Craft Book: Motif Pattern of Origami

Motif Pattern of Origami ISBN978-4-569-70773-0

If you read my last post, then you know I was in Japantown last weekend. And if you know me, you know a visit to Japantown isn't complete without a trip to the Kinokuniya bookstore.  That's where I picked up this gorgeous origami book, Motif Pattern of Origami.  The book is filled with flat modular origami projects.  Modular origami is where you use multiple pieces of paper to make a more complex structure.  Below are a few pictures from the book.





Here are some of the directions to the finished piece above this picture.  If you're familiar with origami, the projects in this book are doable even if you can't read Japanese.
