Easy Origami by Mary Meinking
Are you intimidated by origami? Not sure where to begin? Easy Origami is a good place to start. With a short introduction to the craft and the materials needed, a slightly longer section on how to read the folding symbols (complete with clear, color photographs), this book is a very friendly text for beginners. Continuing in the “keep it simple” vein, there are directions for ten easy projects -- each explained by step-by-step instructions and helpfully illustrated with photographs and a picture of the completed work. At Passages, we’ve often used the heart as our go-to beginning origami project for programs around Valentine’s Day. Other student favorites include the paper cup, the spinning top and the fortune teller. --Anja Kennedy
