Robert J. Lang is one of the world's leading folders. This book shows some of his early work, progressing from the very simple to super-complex designs.
The thing I don't like about this book, is the fact that the written instruction are separated from the drawn diagrams - which makes the flow less comfortable.
Other than that - it's one of those "must have" books, due to to the challenge and intrigue of the models.
