Marc Kirschenbaum is one of the worldâ€™s leading origami artists, and in Creative Origami Kit, he shares an array of impressive origami projects that can be folded in just a few minutes. Kirschenbaumâ€™s models look like complex constructions that would normally stump a beginner, but eight of these fifteen surprisingly simple creations follow the innovative â€œPurelandâ€ origami system. Pioneered by English artist John Smith, Pureland origami uses only simple mountain and valley folds in order to make paper folding easier for beginners and impaired folders.
