Editorial Reviews

Review

"Origami Skeleton of Tyrannosaurus Rex is an outstanding model and the book gives a clear exposition of the folding sequence." -- Robert Lang, The Newsletter for the Friends of the Origami Center of America, Winter/Spring 1993

About the Author

Issei Yoshino gained a considerable amount of notoriety for his innovative origami designs, especially for his dinosaur skeletons. Although he died at a young age in August 1996, he managed to plush origami to its limits in his lifetime. He was one of the pioneer designers in Japan to use computers to diagram origami models. Issei was also one of the founding members of a group of young origami designers called the Origami Detectives.

This is not the first dinosaur skeleton made from several sheets of paper and it is not the last. What makes this one stand head and shoulders above the rest is that the artist set out to create one where all of the pieces were made from the same size piece of paper. It is much easier to get a bunch of paper the same size than to cut and trim for multiple sizes.
The directions are clear and easy to understand as they take you through first folding the individual pieces and then assembling the final skeleton.
The entire project takes a bit of time but does not need to be done all at once and no step can be said to be really hard (there's just a lot of them).
All in all this is a very nice model and a well-designed book. It should bring plenty of enjoyment to anyone who attempts it.

Issei Yoshino was an Origami virtuoso who, unfortunately, passed away in his early 30s. One of his legacies was this magnificent model. For people acquainted with Montroll, Lang, Maekawa, and other masters works, the components should not pose a big challenge. The model is laborious because it involves making several components, but the good news is that they are all made from the same size square. Once it is done, the display is certain to marvel all the ones who see it. This book makes for a fine addition to anybody's Origami library.I highly recommend it!

The reprinted copy of Issei Yoshino's Skeleton of the Tyrannosaurus Rex is an excellent addition to anyone's origami repertoire. The book contains clear diagrams to follow, however the skill level to complete the model is higher than most origami books in the North American market. Once you have completed the model you will be very happy with the result. A paleontologist friend of mine was very impressed with the accuracy of the model. It will impress any who see it! A must buy!
