Renowned origami artist Peter Engel first astounded origami enthusiasts and the lay person alike with his popular Origami from Angelfish to Zen. Since that book, published in 1989, Engel has gone through a personal change in his philosophy of origami design, honed through decades of elevating what is often viewed as simple paper folding into a fine art.

In Origami Odyssey, Engel takes paper crafters on a journey to the edge of paper folding, providing instruction for exquisite and original origami designs, including several that have been shown in galleries and museums throughout the world. Experienced folders will delight in the chance to grow as artists as they master the projects in this book, and new comers to origami will find the author's journey so inspiring that they'll be ready to begin an odyssey of their own.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Life and nature are the inspiration; origami is the passion. Peter Engel's book invites you to explore how a single sheet of paper can evoke wonder in your heart." --Kimber Simpkins, author, Certified Anusara Yoga Instructor
"I love the different folds I can create in this book and the fun projects as well!" --TestTryResults blog
"This magnificent work shows that origami is more than the sum of its folds. By weaving together art, history, music, Zen, his own life's journey and a collection of elegant, distinctive origami works, Engel reveals the spirit within this magical art. Origami Odyssey is a spectacular accomplishment, a work of art in itself, and a worthy successor to Engel's iconic Folding the Universe." --Robert J. Lang, author of Origami Design Secrets
"Peter Engel has done it again! Engel's streamlined aesthetic resonates with the simplicity of Japanese ink painting, garden design, and haiku. In Origami Odyssey he expands the frontiers of origami design still further and shares his secrets through easy-to-follow explanations and diagrams. My family has delighted in making these magical representations of the cosmos and the natural world." --Melissa Rinne, Associate Curator of Japanese Art, Asian Art Museum
"Peter Engel's origami designs sing for themselves: creations of elegance, whimsy, and surprise. Origami Odyssey is an extraordinary celebration of the shared territory where art, nature, geometry, and imagination come together and play." --Tom Rockwell, Director of Exhibits, The Exploratorium, San Francisco
"This is an important, long-awaited book from one of the intellectual leaders in the field of origami art and science. Origami Odyssey is creative, has great models, and is food for the mind as well as the fingers. For an inspirational and thought-provoking journey into the essence of origami, look no further." --Tom Hull, Associate Professor of Mathematics, Western New England University, author of Project Origami
