Recommends it for: advanced origami folders.
Shelves: origami
Definitely a book for the more advanced paper folder. The designs are beautiful and some can be quite complex. It takes patience and dilligence to make the models in this book. But, that is one of the reasons I love it!
Adrian Herbez
Absolutely amazing book. The models are spectacular and fun to fold, and the introduction covers a lot of great ground regarding creativity and pattern formation in nature.
Technically impressive. Great examples of the art. Challenging!

Recommends it for: Folks who want to know how origami really works, pro-level origamists
Amazing book on origami. Not the best book for beginners or intermediates for doing origami, but the VERY best book I have seen about the theory of how the folding actually achieves things like crabs from a single sheet of paper with no cuts. The front section is history and theory and a bit hard. The remaining part is how to do some amazing origami, but most of it is too hard for me.

Recommends it for: anyone who likes Origami
A great origami book with great models. The introduction also gives an awesome explination of the history of Origami, and the ideas behind it. That octopus origami model you always see drawn in a million different books? Yeah, it shows how to make it in this one. Get the book.
James Hanson
Five stars for an origami book? Absolutely, when it begins with 85 pages of theory, math and history before you make a single fold. Great book, with some fun and interesting models toward the back.
