Overall Impression

This is a collection of dragon models put together for the year of the dragon celebrations. The quality of models and diagrams varies. Most are hand-drawn, some of them are hard to decipher. The better models can be found in other sources or on the Internet. I'd recommend this book only to origami-dragon enthusiasts.
