Star Wars Origami: 36 Amazing Paper-folding Projects from a Galaxy Far, Far Away….
Kids love origami—and what could be cooler than transforming a piece of paper into Boba Fett, Princess Leia, Yoda, or R2-D2? And not just any paper, but custom-designed paper illustrated with art from the movies. Star Wars Origami marries the fun of paper folding with the obsession of Star Wars. Like The Joy of Origami and Origami on the Go, this book puts an original spin on an ancient art.
Chris Alexander is a master folder clearly explains 36 models, which range in difficulty from Youngling (easy) to Padawan (medium), Jedi Knight (difficult), and Jedi Master (tricky!). A front section introduces origami definitions and basic folds. Bound in the back is the book’s unique folding paper, two sheets for each figure. Illustrated with original art, it makes each creation—the essential lightsabers, the Death Star, and much more—true to the movies.
If you want to gently introduce your kids into the wonderful world of Star Wars, origami is a good introduction and opportunity for family bonding. As cool as the movies are, they are a far cry from the stuff that the Disney Channel puts out there.
The origami book includes detailed, step-by-step instructions with illustrations for the reader’s ease. Also, the author adds interesting tidbits highlighting a particular character’s or a vehicle’s significance in the films. Chris Alexander has been at this origami thing since he was four, so you’re learning from the cream of the crop. Consider him the Jedi knight of origami.
