About the Author

Michael G. LaFosse has been an origami artist for decades and is considered a leading authority and master of the art. An avid teacher, LaFosse co-founded the Origamido Studio, a learning center and design studio dedicated to the art of origami, and the only place in the world specializing in hand papermaking for the origami artist. LaFosse co-curated Origami Now!, a wildly popular, year-long exhibition at the Peabody Essex Museum in Salem, Massachusetts. He was also prominently featured in the recent, Peabody Award-winning film, Between the Folds, by Vanessa Gould. Richard L. Alexander co-founded the Origamido Studio with Michael G. LaFosse in 1996. He has been the chief papermaker since 2003 and is a frequent collaborator with other famous paper artists. Together, Alexander and LaFosse have created dozens of origami exhibitions, and over 70 books, kits and videos about paper and paper arts.

Reviews

"Noted origami experts LaFosse and Alexander focus on folded-paper butterflies in this elegant how-to guide. After presenting the basic architecture for an origami butterfly, the authors provide a number of variations, most named after well-known origami enthusiasts. Fully illustrated step-by-step directions for each butterfly are included, and five hours of video instruction are provided on the enclosed DVDs."-- Library Journal "LaFosse and Alexander have observed and passionately captured the essence of the butterfly with their exceptional designs. These magnificent butterflies undergo their metamorphosis in the authors' hands." --Reiko Nishioka, Director of Education at the Morikami Museum and Japanese Gardens "These pages present a kaleidoscope of colorful origami butterflies. The authors uphold the philosophy of Akira Yoshizawa sensei, who opened LaFosse's eyes to origami's endless possibilities, which you can now also explore." --Dave Brill, former President of the British Origami Society, and author of Brilliant Origami "LaFosse and Alexander have built up an enviable reputation for producing top quality origami products, carefully and expertly crafted for folders of all levels. Their work is an inspiration." --Nick Robinson, author of Origami Kit For Dummies and World's Best Origami "Within a couple of days I folded over a dozen butterflies from the book. It meant less sleep than I need to stay sane, but one or two nights of that are okay. Anyone who's visited an origami convention can probably relate. And it was so immensely fun and energizing to fold those absolutely amazing butterflies." --Origami USA "This book lends itself well to folders of all levels--including but definitely not exclusively for beginners. The designs are beautiful, elegant, a total eye-catcher." --The Fold blog "The combination of butterflies, origami and Michael LaFosse cannot be anything but magical. I guarantee that this book will enchant you." --Guy Kawasaki, author of Enchantment and former Chief Evangelist at Apple "You cannot go wrong with any book by these authors, much less with this delightful collection of origami butterflies!" --Origami Spirit blog
