"Star Origami is a festival of folding fun that is sure to inspire. Tung Ken's stellar designs are rich with invention, and as always, his works are beautifully illustrated and written by him. Those eager for the math behind the designs will not be disappointed."
- Michael LaFosse (Origamido(R) Studio), author of over 50 origami books including Geometric Origami: The Art of Modular Paper Sculpture

"Tung Ken Lam is one of the world's leading exponents of modular origami design. His books never disappoint."
- David Mitchell, author of Mathematical Origami and founder of

"Perfect for teachers to guide students to explore the relationships between the properties of rectangles and the folded stars. The curious and motivated student will find hours of mathematical buried treasure through folding."
- Charlene Morrow, Director, SummerMath, Mount Holyoke College and Past Board Chair, OrigamiUSA

"Star Origami provides a treasure trove of relevant math foundations, and suggestive pathways for the creative journey. It has already stimulated new directions for my own star structures."
- Arnold Tubis, author of Unfolding Mathematics with Origami Boxes and Tessellation Inspired Origami Box Designs
