This unique book explains the key techniques of folding, such as pleated surfaces, curved folding and crumpling. An elegant, practical handbook, it covers over 70 techniques explained by clear step-by-step drawings,  crease pattern drawings, and specially commissioned photography.

The book is accompanied by a CD containing all the crease pattern drawings.
