Origami Tessellations for Everyone: Original Designs by Ilan Garibi
Tessellations are a special genre of geometric origami in which beautiful repetitive patterns are folded from a single sheet of paper. It may seem impossibly complex to the untrained eye, yet master origami artist Ilan Garibi has broken the process down into the simplest of steps. The result: tessellations, well, for everyone!Each design is presented in three sections: the single molecule (the basic structure), a 2 by 2-molecule project, and finally a 4 by 4-molecule project. It’s a gradual process that enables the reader to learn by doing, with expert coaching all along the way.Instructions for 32 models are included; almost all are original works by Ilan Garibi, one of the most well-known origami tessellators in the world—and one of the few full-time origami artists. Garibi started to create tessellations ten years ago and since then has designed more than 100 unique models. This book is focused on square-grid based tessellations and presents some of his most unique models. The book also includes photos of many of his art pieces—made from metal, wood, and more—based on these very designs.Hand-drawn diagrams by Franziska Schwarz, an origami artist and a graphic designer, bring life and volume to instructions on flat paper for the most comfortable learning experience for folders at every skill level.
