Overall Impression

Taichiro Hasegawa's models are fun! He manages to capture, with a few folds, the cartoonish appearance of many animals, and creates cute and pretty models. This book deals with inside-out folding, which means using both different sides of the paper in the final design.

The layout of the book is excellent, with clear diagrams and a B&W photograph of each model in the corner, and there are also stunning color spreads with all models in the book.
