The book I read was Unit Origami: Multi-dimensional Transformations by the same author. I'm unsure if this is a different edition, but if it's anything like that book, I recommend it for all origami fans (but not necessarily purists).

Ini salah satu buku origami punya dita yang pernah gw baca. Di buku ini ada petunjuk bagaimana caranya membuat kotak toong. :D
Nama aslinya tentu bukan kotak toong, tapi polyhedral bla bla bla apa gitu. Susah banget diingetnya. jadi, dita memberinya nama kotak toong. Trus banyak juga temen2nya kotak toong di buku ini. Beberapa kalo digabung2in bisa membentuk origami yang mirip ayam! Ayam Toong! Hahahaha
I'm not rating this low because it was bad. It's just that I was trying to work through this with a 1st grader and that did NOT work. It's way too advanced and frustrating for a child. In fact, I found it hard to follow myself. The book seemed great but definitely not for beginners.
I've seen a few designs modified from this book before, and was amazed and delighted by the clear instructions, beautiful yet systemic model photos, and progressive approach. Easily my new favorite origami book.
They're ordering it for me! woo hoo


I was expecting modular models like this Epcot Ball, but after I get the hang of it, these will do fine.
