The sky's the limit for papercrafters who want to take the next step with their art. Here are thirty-two origami models that really fly! A new spin on an ancient Japanese craft, action origami is simple enough for beginners, yet sophisticated enough to delight experienced folders. Plus, there's no cutting, gluing, or taping required—all you need is paper and a little patience and you're ready for takeoff! For centuries—since paper was first invented in China—people have been using their creativity to fold paper into a range of imaginative shapes. Now Stephen Weiss, a world-class origami creator who has exhibited models in England, Tokyo, and New York City, has taken this art form skyward. The clever designs, made by folding squares or rectangles of paper (even dollar bills!), include a Manta Ray, Blackboard Bomber, Mach III Jet, SST, and Flying Nun, plus the more traditional Swooping Hawk, Origami Kite, Gliding Swan, Flying Fish, Seagull, and twenty-two others. Fold them, fly them, gift them, and most of all, have fun with them!
