Akira Yoshizawa, Japan's Greatest Origami Master: Featuring Over 60 Models and 1000 Diagrams by the Master
About this deal
Inui took us on a walking tour of the neighbourhood, passing several small temples and shrines and one larger shrine, with the small garden bright with spring flowers and with an ancient Camellia tree about a hundred years old. It had been well-publicised throughout Kyoto and I even saw an advertisement in a train On each occasion I attended there were many visitors thronging the hall and Yoshizawa was usually to be seen chatting to visitors young and old and explaining his work.
Recreating this origami for yourself is surprisingly attainable, through straightforward and often clever folding sequences.Other parts of the exhibition were displayed in fully glassed wall cases lining some of the walls and there were more tall display cases along the centre of the hall.
He would never sell his origami figures, but rather gave them away as gifts to people, and let other groups and organizations borrow them for exhibiting.He made origami models to cheer up the sick patients, but eventually fell ill himself and was sent back to Japan. Another time I met him was when he came to Paris Origami in March 1998, where his work was shown in that great exhibition alongside that of many others of the leading folders of the whole world. I particularly liked two ferocious bulls about to charge each other and, in contrast, a single hare sprawled out contentedly.
