The one person whom I greatly admire till this day is Robert Harbin. I was just a kid when I watched his TV programmes. He may not be the greatest of folders but it was through him and his book, "Paper Magic" that I learnt more about Origami. I also admire Akira Yoshizawa This is because to me, Origami is something which should be shared Yes, Yoshizawa did share his works by publishing his origami Not many, because there is a certain "touch" which only he can reproduce.
This leads me to Geometrical Origami. Here, every fold has to be precise All the folds are straight line from one point to another. Any other person can reproduce the same copy This is where Prof. Yoshihide Momotani and Prof. Shuzo Fujimoto brand of origami are based on. These 2 professors play a great role in my encounter with origami.
From Geometrical Origami comes Modular Origami Today, we have a lot of Modular folders and I think it is not necessary for me to list out everyone. What I like about Modular is because most of the Modules are quite simple. Actually the more simple it is the better I like modules which are derived from Traditional bases and Traditional models. There are just so many beautiful Modular Origami that one can get out from the Traditional Crane. Momotani has lots of these.
He made flowers, Dragons, Centipedes and many other subjects in modular form just by assembling the Tsuru. From Geometrical and Modular, one can actually branch out into different classes. I guess I branched out to Heart Models. Actually, the shape of the Origami heart is a geometrical shape.
At first when I made an Origami heart, my friends laugh and say that there are just too many straight lines, how can you call it a heart? But I guess today the Origami Heart is well accepted. This is just simple weaving with papers I have woven the stars with 5 points to the present 21 points I can go on but there must be a stop for me I do not have any diagrams for all those Woven Stars.
Only figures to tell me the length of the paper strip to use. Some of the angles are quite obvious but for most of those stars, a fixed angle is required. I worked this out by trial and error and I have rough sketches to show how to make the templates for those angles. Those stars are easy to make but difficult to put in diagrams. As for books, I really cannot recommend any particular book because different people have different tastes.
This book features almost everything one can expect from Origami. This book contains a lot of simple stuff which anyone can fold. These 2 books should be good enough for any begineer. There are just too many good books today.
I really cannot say which is the 10 best - the other 8 will depend on each individual tastes. Francis has made his booklet " More Origami Hearts 4U " available to the world, free of charge! This collection is a PDF which may be downloaded only from this site.

Origami Records and Curiosities by John Smith I have always enjoyed reading about the biggest and smallest of almost anything. Naturally, I enjoy the Guinness Book of Records or superlatives. At odd times I have been collecting origami records and I thought it about time I exposed my collection to the fierce gaze of the Internet. I would welcome corrections, updates or new entries. In addition to records I have this time included curiosities. These are not necessarily records, but are of interest. My thanks are due to Ralf Lane of Leipzig for some new world record contributions.
