Overall Impression

This is a surprising little book from 2 little-known creators. The first thing that catches the eye is how beautiful the book is. With excellent quality diagrams and page layout and the absolutely stunning color photographs of the masterfully crafted models. Every photo of an origami animal is accompanied by a photo of the real animal in nature, which can help in final shaping.

The models are not too complex, and range from the common themes (swan) to more innovative grounds (the owl).
