Overall Impression

I find similarities between Giunta's work and the work of Akira Yoshizawa. Both capture the essence of their subjects with uncomplicated folds, which you still have to fold well in order to get a satisfying result.

There are lots of subjects covered in this book. From animals to humans, plants to vehicles, holiday folds and more. Something for everyone.
