Not many people could turn a dollar into a camera these days, but with this book of ten origami models you could have that camera, plus a butterfly, penguin, and eagle; a crab and a scorpion, complete with all their little legs; and an elegant shark. The stunning koi fish at the end will be a challenge for even seasoned origami fans, with folded scales and whiskers, and facial details provided by the engravings on the dollar itself. From a very young age, Korean-American paper-folding artist Won Park created origami animals, fish, birds, and bugs. In middle school he discovered that U.S. currency was the ideal folding medium, both resilient and strong, and since then has made a career out of designing origami and teaching how to turn paper money into beautiful figures. His step by step instructions include color diagrams and photos, and the book comes with 100 sheets of practice currency to help you develop your technique.
