Making a strand of one thousand origami cranes has become an international movement for peace, happiness, and health. This book is an update of the Heian classic, with new photographs and projects, plus forty-eight tear-out sheets of colorful chiyogami to get you started. Included is the story of Sadako in Hiroshima and suggestions for how cranes can be used at schools and hospitals, as wedding gifts, and by people everywhere to demonstrate their commitment to world peace.

Florence Temko

Florence Maria Temko (October 20, 1921 – November 12, 2009), a pioneer in spreading origami in the United States, was perhaps the most prolific author on this subject. With fifty-five books to her credit on paper arts and folk crafts, she was a strong influence on interested beginners in the art of paperfolding. Some of them later developed complex origami designs previously unimaginable and applied their expertise into advanced innovations in the fields of art and science.
