Overall Impression

While some of the models in this book are very nice, and do capture the essence of the breeds in a few folds, others just don't have the look and feel of the real breeds, and are too stylized for my taste. The fact that some of them use cuts and multiple sheets takes out more of the fun.

The layout is very nice, there's a black-and-white photo of the finished model next to a photo of the actual dog breed in the beginning of each model, and color photos of the models are provided at the beginning of the book.
