That being said if the other beginner books here look too easy or childish and you’re not ready for the Intermediate level books then definitely check this one out.

Intermediate Origami Books

These are intermediate level books. The models you’ll find in them look great and are a little bit more complicated but they’re not crazy difficult.

Origami Omnibus

Origami Omnibus

By: Kunihiko Kasahara

This is one of my all time favourite origami books. There are diagrams for a wide variety of models ranging from pretty easy to intermediate difficulty.

The diagrams are easy to read and throughout the book the author has quick little sections explaining some of the theory and math behind origami and origami design. Nothing too complicated.

This book has one of my favourite models to fold, a Chinese dragon that looks really great but isn’t too difficult. There are also a ton of models in this book. Every time you pick it up you’re probably going to find something new to fold.

I highly recommend this book.

This is one of the best books if you’re looking for origami animals. It features sets of diagrams for 25 of John Montroll’s excellent animal designs.

The book starts out pretty easy but some of the later models start getting more difficult. The crab later in the book is one of my favourite origami models to fold. It’s a bit tricky but not too hard and it looks amazing when it’s done.

Origami Art

Origami Art: 15 Exquisite Folded Paper Designs from the Origamido Studio

By: Michael G. LaFosse and Richard L. Alexander

This book starts off with a large section of text about the Origamido Studio and the recent history of origami in the United States. This is followed by another large section about all the various different kinds of origami paper and how to select the best paper for your project.

After this is an excellent section on some of the fancier origami techniques such as back coating, colouring paper with acrylic paint and wet folding.

About 60 pages in the book gets to the diagrams which are great. There are 15 excellent models, mostly animals, that are an intermediate difficulty level. The final model in the book however, the American Crocodile, is incredibly difficult so you probably won’t be attempting that one for a while.

Origami Design Secrets

Origami Design Secrets: Second Edition

By: Robert J. Lang

This book is essentially a textbook on origami design. Robert Lang takes each chapter to describe a different technique used for designing models and ends each chapter with diagrams for a few models that illustrate the technique discussed.

This is a fantastic book for anyone really into origami who wants to learn more about how to create their own models. This book also helped me understand how crease patterns work a lot more too.

There are several diagrams for some excellent models ranging from not too hard to very advanced. There are also several crease patterns as well.

By: Patsy Wang-Iverson, Robert J. Lang and Mark Yim

This is a different kind of origami book. You won’t find any diagrams or models in it, instead you’ll find a bunch of essays about origami theory.

The book is a result a conference, the fifth one of these conferences, held at the Singapore Management University in 2010. During this conference a series of meetings explored the connections between origami, technology, mathematics, education and other academic fields.

The first section of the book is all about the history, art and design of origami. The next section has essays about origami in education, science, technology and engineering. The final section of the book is all about the mathematics behind origami.

If you’re interested in the art form of origami, its history, mathematics and modern applications in science and technology then you’ll find the collection of essays in this book very interesting.

Origami for Interpreters

#1 Origami for Interpreters

By: Roman Diaz

Roman Diaz is a master at designing origami animals, probably because he works as a veterinarian and this book is a collection of 25 of his excellent animal designs.

The book opens up with a text section where Roman Diaz discusses how an origami designer is like a composer and folders are like interpreters and he encourages folders to put their own spin and touches on the models they fold. He has lots of tips and techniques to help folders with this.

After this section the book gets into the diagrams which are clear, detailed and have text instructions in both Spanish and English. The diagrams start off quite easy and get harder throughout the book. The last few models in the book are quite complex.

If you like folding origami animals then you should definitely pick up this book.

VOG: 50+ Hours of Origami

#5 VOG: 50 Hours of Origami+

By: Vietnam Origami Group

This is an amazing book that features exclusively origami designers from Vietnam. Vietnamese origami has a bit of a different visual style. I think the models look like they have more curved than straight lines.

This book has a collection of diagrams from 14 different Vietnamese origami artists and pretty much all the models are awesome.

They start off pretty easy and get more difficult throughout the book. The last several models get quite complex and then there are a couple of crease patterns for some very complex models. Most of the models are intermediate to advanced level though.

Pretty much everything in this book is awesome so you should definitely check it out.

Eco Origami

#6 Eco Origami

By: Bernie Peyton

Bernie Peyton is an expert at designing life-like origami models. This book features 35 of his designs divided into four categories: the Arctic, the Pacific Coast, the Desert and a Tropical Forest. Each category has several plants or animals that would be found in those locations.

The diagrams are all either an intermediate or advanced difficultly level and they’re all explained very well with text in English to go along with the steps. There’s also advice on what kind of paper to use for each model as well.

This is another excellent book especially if you’re interested in folding origami animals and other things found in nature. This book also comes with a CD that has some bonus content and diagrams on it.
