The Lincoln City Libraries have a fairly extensive collection of books teaching you how to do origami, both in the youth and adult collections under 736.982, but this one jumped out at me right away when I saw it.

Included for each design are detailed, broken-down graphics showing the exact folds and order of folding, plus a beautiful photo of the finished work of art. Park's designs are incredibly intricate and beauti ...more

Much tougher than I had anticipated; I got this book out of the library in hopes that Aeddon might be able to make something to send to Matt for his birthday. As it turned out, the minimum amount of steps involved in any given creation is 40, and the maximum more than twice that much. Still, quite interesting stuff. And did I mention, the hook is that the creations are made from dollar bills?

Cool book, but way to complicated (or patience driven) for me. I tried the Spider and the dragon and almost threw away good money in frustration.

This simply shows you how to fold US currency into cars, dragons, preying mantis', bulls, koi, and many other creatures. The koi fish is certainly worth the price of the book.

-i was very excited about this book. i renewed it from the library twice trying to make a couple different things. but the more things i tried, the more stymied i got. the books instructions just weren't clear enough on the more complicated folds, so finally i gave up. i really wanted to make the turtle for my little brother and the tank for my older brother, but the instructions just weren't good enough for me. i'm usually *very* good at this kind of crafty hands-on stuff. so it really frustrat ...more
