Unique and wildly creative, this mathematical approach to origami was invented by a Japanese master of the art. Jun Maekawa regards paperfolding from a perspective guided by geometric and aesthetic principles. In this captivating how-to book, he illustrates his point of view with directions for constructing 34 fabulous items, including cubes, towers, and geometric shapes as well as puzzles and figures of everyday items.
This is the first publication outside Japan of these original models, offering advanced beginners and serious origamists a combination of simple and complex figures and an intriguing blend of art and science. Rather than the square-shaped paper familiar to American folders, all models employ rectangular sheets of paper — that is, sheets with an aspect ratio of 1:1.41, or 1:√2. Instructions for making rectangular origami paper are included.

Dover (2012) English translation and new selection of models from Genuine Origami √2, Japan Publications, Inc., Japan, 2009.
