Almost everyone is familiar with origami, the art of paper folding, but kokigami is a cock (er, bird) of an entirely different feather. The first definitive instructional guide to this ancient Japanese art, KOKIGAMI brings to life—quite literally—this most mysterious practice from the Orient. Written specifically for Westerners, KOKIGAMI contains 14 beautiful little paper costumes that are a delight to make and a rare pleasure to use. The authors' writings on the history and lore of the art will intrigue anyone interested in Japanese paper arts, and the costumes themselves will fascinate and inspire those eager to add new and exciting dimensions to their intimate relationships.
