Review

There are no animal pictures, no flowers, no dinosaurs. Instead, a heavy-metal guitarist leaps across the cover... -- Daniel Scher, OrigamiUSA's The Paper

10 of 10 people found the following review helpful By L. de Souza on August 26, 2000
Format: Paperback
Marc Kirschenbaum's book is a wonderful collection of origami models with a fantastic theme. The models are high intermediate in difficultly, but clearly diagrammed and should prove a pleasant challenge for experienced folders. The theme of all musicians is delightful and unique among origami collections! In addition, Mr. Kirschenbaum has prefaced each model with insights to his creative process as well as friendly folding tips which anticipate the trickier folding manoeuvres he's created. This really gives the books a personal touch and makes the diagrams much more accessible. Thank you for creating such a wonderful book!

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Herberto Dutra on July 4, 2005
Format: Paperback
The author combines a series of various origami techniques (box pleating being the most predominant) to create lifelike musicians out of uncut paper squares (only two exceptions: the dollar bill guitarrist and the awesome leaping guitarrist that is made of a rectangle). It is a challenging book, but perseverance will be rewarded! Instructions were extremelly well written. A definitive must for someone looking for a uniquely themed book (other than the many other books devoted to animals and geometric patterns) and also a great guide to develop multiple paperfolding techniques! Great work Marc! A true masterpiece!

Format: Paperback
This book is totally awesome! Really hard origami, though. Still, if you can do it, the models are totally impressive.
