It's simply an amazing collection.

The rose alone is an amazing model, with some sort of interdimensional central twist fold that still does my head in to think about. Lots of preparatory folding in the models to then bring off some clever forms.

I unfortunately left this book with a friend in SA called Joe and hope to retrieve it back if he still has it. If you ever see it, I'll pay for another copy!
Not for beginners, awesome models.
