It's an awesome book. I love origami, and I think it would've been a cool hobby if only I could... you know. Follow the instructions. :) Anyway, the book has illustrated step-by-step guides and is really great. Also, the front inside cover tells me this book is traveling around, and you can track its progress at a website. Pretty cool!
This book features a wide variety of origami figures with a range of difficulty levels. The first chapter goes over origami fundamentals. Some figures included in this book are Birds, Insects & Flowers, Water Creatures and Other Animals, Vehicles, Ornaments, Paper Jets, Masks and Human Figures.
This book begins with the fundamentals of paper folding and moves on to include more advanced paper folding techniques. Black and white illustrations are included on nearly every page, but the results are not always easy to duplicate for those (like me) who don't have much practical experience. I would recommend this book to those who have had some hands-on experience, or a wealth of patience.
