Jordan Langerak is a 19-year-old origami artist from Melbourne, Australia. He was first introduced to origami in grade 4 when his mom bought him a beginner origami book. However, it wasn't until the end of 2011 that he started to gain a real interest in complex origami. He has since designed and folded multiple works which he shares on Instagram (@langko) and Flickr. This is his first book as co-author and he plans to release his own in the future.
"Patterns include such iconic structures as The Washington Monument, The White House, The Empire State Building, Big Ben, The Burj Al Arab (that very cool hotel in Dubai that looks like the sail of a ship), and many more you will recognize instantly. They even show you how to make a leaning Tower of Pisa. It is absolutely amazing what you can make from folded paper!" - Rhapsody In Books blog
