**Recensie(s)**

Fuse, author of several books on origami, is considered a master of the art. (…) After a guide that shows the origami symbols and basic folds, the more than three-dozen projects are divided into three categories: simple boxes made using square sheets, modular boxes made using multiple square sheets, and modular boxes made using rectangular sheets. Even the most basic of the projects is impressive, and as Fuse points out, simpler designs are perfectly suited to show off specialty printed paper. The instructions are presented in a numbered sequence of visual symbols with occasional text accompanying, and each project lists the standard-size sheet for it. A terrific guide to learning or practicing origami. – Booklist Critique: Simply stated, Tomoko Fuse’s Origami Boxes is an ideal introduction into the Japanese art form and craft of making origami boxes. Profusely illustrated and thoroughly ‘user friendly’ in organization and presentation, Tomoko Fuse’s Origami Boxes is very highly recommended for personal and academic library do-it-yourself craft collections. (…) gift-giving will never be the same. – Midwest Book Review Tuttle has published an amazing lineup of origami books and kits but they’ve outdone even themselves with this one…Beautifully designed, the instructions include clearly-understandable visual diagrams for each project. -Retailing Insight Origami master Fuse’s brilliant book is an almost wordless pictorial road map to creating palm-size paper boxes and containers. With clearly drawn instructions and photographed finished projects, the book is an excellent introduction to an ancient art form. -Publishers Weekly

But the Emersons’ own less impressive excavations are interrupted when father and son Ramses are lured into a trap by a strange group of villains ominously demanding answers to a question neither man comprehends. And it will fall to the ever-intrepid Amelia to protect her endangered family—and perhaps her nemesis as well—from a devastating truth hidden uncomfortably close to home . . . and from a nefarious plot that threatens the peace of the entire region.

Praise for Tom Clancy:

‘There’s hardly another thriller writer alive who can fuel an adrenaline surge the way Clancy can’ Daily Mail
‘Exhilarating. No other novelist is giving so full a picture of modern conflict’ Sunday Times

Thirty years ago Tom Clancy was a Maryland insurance broker with a passion for naval history. Years before, he had been an English major at Baltimore’s Loyola College and had always dreamed of writing a novel. His first effort, The Hunt for Red October, sold briskly as a result of rave reviews, then catapulted on to the New York Times bestseller list after President Reagan pronounced it ‘the perfect yarn’. From that day forward, Clancy established himself as an undisputed master at blending exceptional realism and authenticity, intricate plotting, and razor-sharp suspense. He passed away in October 2013.
Mark Greaney has a degree in international relations and political science and is pursuing his master’s in intelligence studies with a concentration in criminal intelligence. He is the author of The Gray Man, On Target, and Ballistic.
