Low self-esteem? Try Origami!

I spend far too much of my life rummaging through charity shops and antiques centres. It’s really not good, because I don’t have the money to spend/waste the way I used to. There’s also the issue of bringing yet more junk home (as my children see it) when I don’t have enough room as it is.

Still, there it is, I was tempted and found a less than rare item in the book section, Harbins “Teach Yourself”. I always buy these (£1 seemed reasonable) in order to give away to beginners at demos and meetings. What caught my eye enough to warrant a photo was the company that this book kept. The books weren’t seemingly filed by category, but whilst origami is not usually to be found in “self-help”, it seems as good a way as any to cure low self-esteem ;)

Low self-esteem? Try Origami! — 1 Comment

  1. A good ‘photo and it reminds me of our local charity bookshop where I have picked up some excellent origami books over the years. However, there is also a point to be made about the genuine therapeutic effects of origami which have been well publicised and documented elsewhere Speaking for my own part, when I am under stress at work I find that origami can be enormously calming, both in the process of folding, and in esaping to a world of pure geometric form, if only for 5 minutes.
