About the Author

Sam Ita's fascination with paper airplanes began at an early age. He apprenticed for five years with Robert Sabuda and Matthew Reinhart on bestselling pop-up titles including America the Beautiful and Encyclopedia Prehistorica, and on Christmas cards for the Museum of Modern Art. His creations include Christmas Tree In-a-Box, Van Gogh's Sunflowers In-a-Box, The Odyssey, Moby Dick, 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea and Frankenstein. He lives in Brooklyn, New York. Paul Frasco is an origami designer focused on expressive animal and fantasy designs boasting fun and accessible folding sequences. Paul's design aesthetic is influenced by modern origami greats like Robert Lang and the late Eric Joisel. The scale of Paul's work ranges from diminutive pieces folded from a single sheet of standard origami paper to oversized pieces--including one folded from a single 18' x 18' sheet of paper for installation at Stony Brook University's Wang Center for Asian Studies. He has been featured in public spaces, museums, libraries and galleries around the US. Paul co-authored Creative Origami and Beyond.
