My second book from this author - enough template to just get going, but also enough theory to rapidly mash up one's own designs. I use a Silhouette paper cutter to rapidly move to prototypes, using dotted cuts for score lines.

A fantastic resource. The book explains the fundamentals of creating sturdy 3-dimensional forms out of paper. Once you're done with the basics, it teaches you how to invent your own forms. There's even a chapter on common closures that I found really useful. Figuring all the info in this book out yourself is possible, but would take waaaay longer.

I'm Graphic designer and I bought this book a few months ago, in my country not exist a similar like this, the truly remarkable on this product is it gives you the possibility to create a well-made packaging from primordial bases. Now Im teaching the subject of packaging design a group of students and the method used by the autor is really practical and friendly even if you don't any idea about boxes or package. You have extra material visiting the web site of this autor ... Im really really fine with my purchase... Es un libro buenísimo y esencial.

The book provides basic and advanced insight into paper packaging. I would prefer a few more examples on the "advanced" area but, nevertheless, it is quite insightful. I am an industrial designer and not a professional in paper packaging.

There really isn't a better book that, in my opinion, that teaches you how to create your own nets. All other books give you nets that you can "copy-paste". After reading this, the sky is the limit.

I originally wanted this book for ideas on making larger custom boxes but all of the designs are more in-line with crafting. There are excellent layout sheets that you can copy and enlarge so you aren't trying to figure out where to make all of those complex folds. As I was reviewing the contents, I was inspired to start working on some smaller craft projects but I really don't have the time right now, but in the future, this book will be a great reference. Every artist/maker should have it on the shelf just in case.

I am a sculptor by trade, and have always enjoyed origami. When I stumbled on this book, I was excited because it covered the overarching guidelines to creating 3d forms. It also includes many patterns that can be followed exactly, but discusses the process of creating a more complex form from a simple cube. I have greatly enjoyed reading thus far and can already think of a few people to whom I will be suggesting this book as a "good read."
