Complete Pleats: Pleating Techniques for Fashion Architecture, and Design
By Paul Jackson.
Not technically a book about origami, but techniques can be applied to paper. This is the most comprehensive book about pleating on the market. It explains how pleating systems can be stretched, compressed, flared, skewed, multiplied and mirrored, showing how from simple ideas, a huge number of original pleat forms can be created. Each technique is explained with a series of step-by-step photographs and line illustrations, enabling the designer to work through the basic principles of pleating and then adapt them to their specific needs. Complete Pleats also features more than 60 examples of pleats from the worlds of architecture, fashion and product design.
The book includes a DVD featuring 23 videos of pleating techniques.
