What could be more beautiful than a colorful bouquet of artfully folded paper flowers? From the world-renowned studio of Michael LaFosse and Richard Alexander, these new origami flower designs are as enchantingly complex as real blossoms. The best part is--they won't wilt after a week on your table! LaFosse and Alexander together founded Origamido Studio, a learning center and design studio specializing in exquisite handmade origami paper. This new collection of paper folding projects includes many innovative flower models.

"There is a nice balance of easy, intermediate and harder models in this book [ ] I have read numerous origami books and folded hundreds of flowers, so it was nice to see some original designs. The quality of the book itself is pretty high, its a soft cover, but the simple stapled spine makes it easy to open the book without it flipping closed. The pages are modern satin, thin but sturdy. The colours and the photos are high quality and pretty. The size is about A5, which makes it easy to handle, and cute!" "Paper Kawaii" blog"
