More Info

The endgame tends to be the neglected side of the game of go. This is strange indeed, for it also tends to be where the outcome is decided, and frequently accounts for about half the stones played.

This volume, by a Japanese professional go player and a strong American amateur, seeks to rectify this situation by setting forth the basic tactics, strategies and counting techniques needed in the endgame.

Everything from the smallest local tesujis to the global macroendgame is covered. With numerous examples and problems, many of them drawn from the Japanese author's professional games. The reader is encouraged to think for himself and, by doing so, will certainly become stronger.

"Sets out to entrance the reader, and succeeds." -- British Chess Magazine
"My recommendation is when you do not possess the first edition, you should immediately buy this book." -- Harold van der Heijden
Most strong players appreciate the depth of ideas that come from chess endgame studies, and this updated and revised introduction offers players a series of fascinating scenarios. The endgame study affords both beauty and entertainment, providing the equivalent of a short story in the world of chess.
Authors John Beasley and Timothy Whitworth are internationally acknowledged experts in the field. Rather than employing situations that have arisen in actual play, they have selected these challenging studies specifically for this volume in order to offer combinations far more subtle and spectacular than those produced over a board. The text is clearly worded and free from jargon. Three diagrams accompany each study, precluding the need for a chess set and making the book an ideal travel companion.

FABRIGAMI: THE ORIGAMI ART OF FOLDING CLOTH TO CREATE DECORATIVE AND USEFUL OBJECTS

FABRIGAMI: THE ORIGAMI ART OF FOLDING CLOTH TO CREATE DECORATIVE AND USEFUL OBJECTS

Author: STOVALL, JILL
$15.95
More Info
Fold decorative origami objects out of cloth with this easy-to-use origami book.

Fabrigami is the Asian art of folding fabrics to create three-dimensional objects ranging from the practical to the whimsical. Like paper, there are countless beautiful fabric designs to choose from, but only fabric has the virtue of being extremely durable.

Fabrigami began as origami legend Florence Temko's final project. Everyone knows that origami is the art of paper folding, but Temko had begun experimenting with folding fabric to make objects that are just as beautiful but more lasting than paper. Sadly, Temko passed away before the book was completed, but her collaborator, Jill Stovall, continued their work. Now, Stovall--with the help of Scott Stern, a rising young star of origami--brings Fabrigami to print for everyone to use and enjoy.

This origami book begins by presenting instructions on how to treat fabric, so it holds a shape when folded. Then Stovall shares a series of fun craft projects with simple origami-style diagrams that you can use to make a range of lovely objects. Stiffening the fabric requires some practice, but the folds are all easy enough to be considered origami-for-kids projects and are a great way to learn origami.

Cloth origami projects include:

  • Fan-tastic Fold Earrings
  • Evening Wine Coat
  • Florence's Hexagon Box
  • Cloth Kimono Card
  • Pleated Peacock
  • FAMOUS GAMES SAKATA EIO 6 volumes
