About the Author

About Adeline Klam

With no more than a square of paper, a touch of glue or a thread of string, there appears under her fingers, as if by magic, fold after fold of surprise and wonder. This is the work of Adeline Klam.

Trained at the Duperré school in Textile Arts and Printing, Adeline has always loved the interplay of pattern and colour. But her passion for paper really began when she discovered Japanese paper or washi. Travelling to traditional paper factories in Japan, she was inspired by the beauty of these original designs; over time she learned to master this material and now runs a workshop where she exhibits and sells her creations, from origami garlands to decorative stationery.

She is the author of numerous books, including The Paper Bible and Furoshiki Workshop. Enter the colourful world of Adeline Klam by going to her website at www.adelineklam.com

Booklist, November issue

Any crafter who has tried origami knows not to assume that the simple folding of paper is really simple. For this collection of over 50 origami flowers, animals, and decorative objects, Klam launches right into her very detailed projects without first specifying the types of paper and other materials crafters will need. Aside from that missing information upfront, project directions are remarkably clear. From a simple windmill to a horse, heart, or elephant, each design includes different sizes, which will help determine what size paper is needed. Also included are level of difficulty; tips, such as using felt tip pens to personalize rabbit faces and for projects destined to be coasters or party invitations; and crucial step-by-step diagrams. Pure childs and adults play for patient hands.
