Once used to make votive offerings to the gods, Japanese paper folding and cutting now becomes a new kind of expression for the contemporary age. Because it involves the use of scissors (or straight-edged implements), kirigami is far more intricate than its cousin origami, with folds and circles and glues that need to be applied. In fact, end results resemble a Museum of Modern Art creation rather than a centuries-old craft. The more than 45 patterns feature strikingly geometric forms of birds, fish, alphabets, and even bear cubs. Each design is highlighted by complete directions, indications of the simplicity or difficulty of folding and cutting, step-by-step color photographs, and close-ups of the finished product. A final note for the eminently practical: take note of the very worthy utilitarian objects, such as a lamp and a pencil holder. Barbara Jacobs
