Make fun and functional origami out of your spare paper with this easy origami book.

Don't dump your wastepaper into the garbage--it's time to fold! World-renowned origami artists and award-winning authors Michael G. LaFosse and Richard L. Alexander show you the way with Trash Origami. This origami book presents unique and fun projects from their Origamido Studio and from some of the world's best paper designers, including Nick Robinson, Herman Van Goubergen, and Rona Gurkewitz.

The origami models are presented for the reader who may have little or no previous folding experience, making it a great origami-for-kids book and an effective way to learn origami. However, experienced paper folders will also be intrigued by the novel nature of the folds and the unusual materials involved. The origami designs are made from old calendar pages, candy wrappers, envelopes, newspaper, postcards, paper grocery bags and more. The accompanying DVD video tutorial will make the folding process clearer and aid folders of all skill levels. Also provided is a guide to everyday materials that have the most folding potential leaving readers inspired to design and display their very own "trash" origami.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"A fun, instructive guide showing how to turn trash into origami." --Architectural Record
"In this colorfully illustrated book using heavyweight glossy sheets, 25 different origami productions are clearly explained, diagrammed, and photographed. While the patterns presented are cleverly attractive, the novelty exploited in this volume is the use of recyclable raw materials in place of the traditional origami paper." --Sacramento Book Review
