A solid reference book for the hard core enthusiast, but not really for somebody just looking to dabble. A good amount of history, lots of different uses and types of folding, but few full project instructions that can simply be followed from beginning to end. A fine book but just not for me.

When people ask me about origami, this is the book I reach for first. Beyond being a pattern book, it includes patterns (some very elegant, amusing, or simply lovely), but more intriguing is the way the patterns fit into the larger context of history & culture, studded with quirky stories, personalities, and trivia.

Kenneway has a good way of explaining which way to fold. There's nothing more disappointing than getting stuck on a design because there's a crucial step missing. This book contains way more than origami, covering all kinds of historical folded paper techniques.

I really like the bits of information about the history and uses of folding. It includes how to fold a loincloth, and some of the odd uses of origami items. It has clear directions, diagrams, and pictures, with many many items to fold. I like it a lot.

This is the very first origami book I own.

Not only it provides details on how to fold, it also provides information on the culture of origami.

I strongly recommends this book to origami beginners.
