The twisting mechanism produces fabulous kaleidoscopic op-art results. Her design tweak is indeed a new spin on an existing technique. Wow factor! It is a distillation of the formidable knowledge that she has garnered about her new technique. The book has excellent production values — the illustrations, photography, and book design are all of excellent professional standard.
Throughout the book are kaleidoscopic photo galleries of twist variations. The book includes 20 original designs — curlicue squares, hexagons, rectangles, plus detailed how-tos for cutting the paper strips and folding the Curlicues. There are lots of helpful tips. Her new technique has necessitated the coining of new origami terminology: a twist fix is an important new move, and a Valley Curve is a new origami configuration- both are specific to the Curlicue.
Curlicues have obvious geek-appeal. Although probably not for absolute origami novices, the models are archievable if you work carefully and follow the instructions to the letter. A degree of motivation is required because you are required to precisely cut-your-own paper strips. Curlicues are here to stay. Why not offer commercially-available pre-cut Curlicue Strips?
The verdict: fascinating, fun, worth a try! A challenging new origami variation. Note: I purchased my own copy of this title. Watch this space for more origami book reviews.
