Adolfo Cerceda (1923–79) was a talented Argentinian magician and an exceptionally gifted origamist. Many of his creations — such as the Arab on horseback, baseball player, bullfighter, and flamenco singer — are now origami classics.
This book of remarkably original and inventive projects, presented by origami expert Vicente Palacios, provides instructions for constructing over 100 different models attributed to Cerceda. Designed especially for newcomers to the art of paperfolding, they include such traditional figures as a duck in flight, a camel, rabbit, elephant, penguin, cat, jaguar, lion and lioness, butterfly, and polar bear, as well as such unusual subjects as a vampire, kneeling angel, devil, Pegasus, a sofa, and other ingenious creations.
Complete folding instructions accompany each project. There are also directions for general folding techniques, a table of folding symbols, a list of origami organizations, and more. A new introduction by origami expert Peter Engel complements a profusely illustrated volume that will delight beginning and veteran paperfolders alike.
