Origami


Origami's origins may trace back to the Shinto gohei, folded strips of paper hung to indicate the presence of a kami (spirit). Great stuff, but not for the fumble-fingered (although any elementary school kid in Japan can fold a perfect origami crane). Fortunately this selection includes several "easy" titles; so our advice: don't take it too seriously, just have fun. BTW, learning to fold a cool origami animal makes a great kakushi-gei (hidden talent) to display at parties.
