Mark Bolitho is a world-renowned origami artist and designer. He has written several books on the subject, including Fold Your Own Origami Army and Start Origami, a beginner's guide. In 2009 he was the guest of honor at the annual Nippon Origami Association symposium in Japan. He is the chairman of the British Origami Society and resides in Hertfordshire, United Kingdom.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 4-8-Each of these books begins with a basic introductory spread, While the other three introductions offer general information, Weapons can be uncomfortably specific given the age of the target audience. Each book proceeds with six identical pages that provide a list of materials and diagrams of basic techniques, followed by between five-and-seven projects that result in items such as a long-range bomber, battleship, or tank. Again, there are some uncomfortable statements. In Army, the preface to "Artillery" states, "Take aim with this great looking artillery piece." Weapons refers to an automatic pistol as a "neat little weapon" and a missile as "real fun to have around." α(c) Copyright 2013. Library Journal. LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
