"John Szinger has designed a beautiful array of imaginative and challenging origami animals. These fun projects reveal a wealth of new ideas." --John Montroll, origami designer and author
"John Szinger has taken on a wide range of subjects for this book, providing lots of interesting sequences for folders to tackle and enjoy. Szinger distills the essence of each subject and playfully highlights key features, like the eyes of his Cuttlefish and the snout on his Bull Walrus. He achieves clever color changes on pieces like the Common Loon, Inchworm and others. Each model exhibits a profoundly intelligent design methodology. The fun is in folding these gems to discover how each masterpiece will emerge." --Mark Kirschenbaum, origami designer and author
"I would give a 5-star rating on this book! The models are pleasantly challenging and provide good practice for aspiring folders like myself, who need to work on difficult folding techniques, such as crimp and sink folds." --Yuki's Origami Blog
"In Origami Animal Sculpture, John Szinger illustrates the attention to detail that is the hallmark of his work. Szinger's interest in origami began when he started folding paper airplanes as a boy and he began diagramming his own models as a way to share his art with fellow paper folders. Trained as an engineer and software developer, Szinger incorporates alternate geometries, including one-fifth, one-sixth, and polar or rotational-based symmetries, into his work to create gorgeous models that are sure to delight any animal lover." Origami
"John Szinger has a knack for creating complex-looking designs with ample attention to details, which are actually not incredibly complex to fold. The models, covering a wide range of the animal kingdom, as well as a few objects, using an innovative array of folding sequences, are well-designed, maximizing the surface of the paper and making them suitable for folding from almost any type of paper. The author does suggest the most suitable paper and starting size for each design." --Gilad's Origami Page
"John Szinger is an origami artist in Westchester County, NY, turning squares of paper into delightful little sculptures. In his latest book, Origami Animal Sculpture, Szinger offers step-by-step instructions for creating everything from an inchworm to a narwhal." --Adirondack Life blog
"In this book, you will find beautiful photos, clear directions and an instructional DVD that make the animals a joy to fold and display." --Suzy's Artsy Craftsy Sitcom blog
