"The Mind-Bending Artistry of Robert J. Lang." See the article online here.

(2011) This new edition of Origami Design Secrets adds several diagrams for new models, 10 crease patterns for new designs, and new chapters on advanced box-pleating techniques, hex pleating, and polygon packing methods of origami design. ODS2e has 200 pages of new material not in the first edition, but I took out the chapter on mathematical algorithms, figuring most people would not be interested in big, hairy equations. If you are, not to worry: you can download that section.

(2011) (with John Montroll) This contains the other half of the models that were in Origami Sea Life, plus a handful of not previously published designs: from John, an Octopus and Parrotfish; from me, Hideko\'s Goldfish, Banded Angelfish, and Rock Lobster.

(2010) (with John Montroll) This contains about half of the models that were in Origami Sea Life, plus a handful of not previously published designs: from John, a Perch and Swordfish; from me, Tokinobu's Goldfish, Gourami, Ray, and Siamese Fighting Fish.

June, 2003

(2003) I consider this work to be my magnum opus; more than just a collection of instructions, it teaches the underlying concepts of origami and how you can create your own original origami designs. It also contains instructions for 25 figures ranging from simple to super-complex, including the famous Black Forest Cuckoo Clock. (Note: this book is now out of print. The second edition contains most of the original, plus about 200 pages of new material.)

(2003) The world of origami insects advances rapidly! This book contains 18 new insect designs ranging from complex to super-complex. With both English and Japanese instructions.

OrigamiUSA publication.

(1996) This is another good beginner book, also good for teaching and classrooms; all of the figures move in one way or another. Birds flap, mouths open, catapults toss. The difficulty ranges from simple to high intermediate. The designs are by myself and others.

October, 1995

(1995) Origami insects have always posed a special challenge to the origami composer. This book contains 20 figures of assorted arthropods, all complex. You can consider yourself an accomplished folder if you have mastered them all.

London, 20th Anniversary Convention

(1992) Although this book is now out of print, you can often find it at used bookstores and websites. It is one of my favorites to recommend to beginners, containing a large proportion of simple to intermediate compositions by myself and others.
December, 1991

(1990) (with John Montroll) This collaboration with prolific origami artist and author John Montroll arose when John and I met at a British Origami Society convention in 1987 and discovered that we’d both discovered the unique challenges posed by many sea creatures. The difficulty ranges from beginner to complex. (Note: this is now out of print. The two books Origami Under the Sea and Sea Creatures in Origami together contain the full contents of this book, plus a few new pieces.)

February, 1989

(1989) (with Stephen Weiss) This collaboration with origami artist Stephen Weiss contains a variety of animal designs ranging from low intermediate to moderately complex.

Published by the Friends of the Origami Center of American (now OrigamiUSA).

(1988) This was my first book. It contains instructions for 37 figures, ranging from beginner to moderately complex, including sections on 3-dimensional figures and action models.
