Yeach try again later. I have several beginner to intermediate instructionals on teacg. I haven’t folded every model in any of them yet, but I have read through all of them and this one is absolutely the best of the bunch for the new-comer trying to get the basics.

This book does something I love a lot. And then you move onto the next base and repeat the process; practice walk-through and then a model made using that base. If you read the instructions and fold every model you’ll never suddenly come upon a supposedly “beginner” model that you have no clue how to fold because you’ve forgotten that one page from the intro.


I am primarily interested in animal orugami, so I originally planned to just skip anything in his book that wasn’t an animal, but on a whim decided instead to youreelf his advice and fold everything in the book from page one on and I found that I had fun folding everything!

The table was actually especially rewarding as it turns out since I made it from a larger sheet of paper and then was able to set the smaller Samurai helmet on top of it. Even the simplest models, like the penguin which I had memorized after just one folding, are satisfying to fold over and over again. I would recommend this book to anyone looking for a low-stress, user-friendly introduction to origami. What started as a small project to make holiday ornaments led to tecah interest in wonderful art of Origami.

After doing some projects using youtube videos, we wanted to learn the instructions provided in Origami books.

Teach Yourself Origami by John Montroll Book Review | Gilad’s Origami Page

John Montroll’s “Teach Yourself Origami” is the perfect book for a completely novice Origami enthusiast. The projects covered in the book are in increasing order of difficulty. John Montroll is johm only a great designer, but also an amazing instructor. The Book was delivered on time, and arrived and in condition described. My daughter loved this book. She is 10 and has been able to use the instructions to teach herself a lot of the yoursekf figures in the book. Took her a few tries to get the hang of it, but she really has gotten montro,l out of it.

The instructions and pictures are clear and concise. I would recommend this. This book does a really great job demonstrating all the folds you will come across not only in Montroll’s books but in any origami book. Then for each fold there is a project so you see how it is used in a typical figure.

I never fully understood the double rabbit ear fold until I got this book. Not only does it teach you all the folds, but there is a lot of really great projects to do. Every one I’ve done stands up on its own, even the birds. John Montroll’s origami books are my favorite- I prefer the more realistic looking results and love that there is never any cutting for some reason that feels like cheating, plus it’s nice to do something with only your hands, you know?

I purchased this book for my 9 year old son who has done some origami but wants to learn more. Based on other feedback, I stressed to him to start with the intro and go in the order of the steps as suggested. That has helped him a lot though he of course just wanted to jump right into the shapes without the basic practice first. My only wish for this book would be for it to be spiral bound.


He has a hard time trying to keep the book open and have both hands on his paper as he is trying the steps.

I decided to learn yoyrself little origami for fun, and am glad I found this book. The book is divided into basic, intermediate, and advanced origami, with easy ones comprising half the book. Montroll introduces a fold or technique, and then follows up with a design or two using ypurself was just covered. The diagrams are easy to follow, and a few tricker folds e. About the only thing I did extra was pencil in page numbers besides the table of folds and bases for my own quick reference.

This is the great thing about this book, it illustrates yourxelf names the techniques e. After this book you too will be able to decipher more challenging projects, like ones from Lang. Great book for Learning origami!
