July 31, 2015: "DC Super Heroes Origami" Book Review

by Neil A. Cole

What happens when you combine Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, and the Justice League with the art of origami? You get the most incredible collection of paper-folding projects ever assembled.

Capstone Publishing presents "DC Super Heroes Origami" which features 46 models, meticulously designed by internationally renowned origami master John Montroll, which are guaranteed to amaze and keep any superhero fan entertained for hours.

The book is truly wonderful and comes complete with simple squares of paper which transform into Batarangs, S-Shields, Invisible Jets, Green Lanterns, and so much more. Also included in the back of the book are 96 sheets of specially illustrated folding papers to make your DC creations truly come to life.

Even if you have never tried your hand at origami before, "DC Super Heroes Origami" will make you a master of the ancient art of paper folding in a manner of minutes. Designs based on the iconic characters of the DC Universe are featured in progressive levels of difficulty with step-by-step diagrams and instructions.

With all the eye-popping designs and artwork featured in the book, there is no risk of becoming bored with just a few scattered photos and a lot of nearly useless line drawings which, unfortunately, is typical of many other origami books.

Another key factor that "DC Super Heroes Origami" demonstrates is that many different origami designs actually start from the same beginning folds, which makes it easier to learn all the new ones and eventually create your own original designs.

Even though it may be targeted at ages 8 - 12, all-in-all "DC Super Heroes Origami" will make a great addition to any DC Comics or superhero fan's collection regardless of age or experience with origami.

Be sure to pick up a copy of "DC Super Heroes Origami" for only $14.95 when it hits store shelves on September 1st, 2015. After a few days of polishing your paper folding skills, your friends will believe you're the one with super powers. Just keep in mind that, with 46 DC Comics designs, you may have a problem deciding where to put all your origami creations.
