about this item

DiLeonardo-Parker introduces a unique origami technique, tessellation. Tessellations are repeating patterns of polygons on a plane. This style uses twists and pleats to achieve repeating patterns that end up being quite interesting. Chapter titles include, The Six Simple Twists, How to Use the Six Simple Twists, and Beyond the Six Simple Twists. Each chapter is organized in sections specifically addressing each step in the process. There are numerous photographs and diagrams, and step-by-step instruction.

An in-depth look into origami tessellation design, this book does not include traditional models such as flowers, animals, or insects, but rather remarkably intricate paper patterns known as tessellations. It follows the construction and analysis of six twists that are well-known to tessellation designers and explains how to use these twists to create generalized rules about the medium as a whole. Employing an accessible style, it describes the concepts in a way that is understandable to anyone with geometric curiosity.
