Origami Alfresco is a quirky and unusual portfolio of clear diagrams for 50 of David Mitchell’s simple yet amazing origami designs, created from the contrast between the white and coloured sides of standard origami paper, and includes sections on Animals and People, Inanimate Objects, Double Images, The Sea and Landscapes. This is the first edition.
As you would expect from the author, many of these designs are much more than just static sketches. Some, like Freefall/Limbo, can be viewed in several completely different ways, while others, like Lovebird or Dogfish turn from one thing into another. There are action designs, like Shark Attack and Hull Down, optical illusions like Head to Head and Paradozocal Object, and even a Find the Lady puzzle as well. This book is both simple enough for complete beginners but also one that the origami aficionado will cherish and enjoy.
