If you've ever wondered how an origami designer thinks or wanted more information on how to create new models yourself – this book is for you. In Creating Origami J.C. Nolan brings you inside the creative process in glorious detail. Nolan describes his experience of exploration, trial, error, struggles and successes as he worked out the origami design process and documented his experience during his growth in knowledge and expertise.

The first 100 pages of the book document his thoughts on the creative experience, strategies, tools and tricks of the trade. This is followed by more than 50 models that Nolan designed or was inspired by through this process of discovery.

The models range in difficulty from simple to complex, represented by well-drawn diagrams, with designs from famed creators Fred Rohm, Patricia Crawford and others. Included are beautifully detailed instructions for his popular Andrea’s Rose and Braided Paper as well as the famous two-color Clownfish and Sea Anemone, amazing, classic designs for origami enthusiasts of all ages.

After 15 years of being out of print, Creating Origami is a rare, sought-after classic, original copies of which are jealously guarded by lucky collectors who were able to obtain them upon its first release. Now, after a successful and well publicized re-launch campaign on, Creating Origami is once again available to a new generation of fans, folders, and designers.

A must-have book for the technical folder or budding creator!
