Overall Impression

First, a word of warning - the models featured on the book's cover are not diagrammed in it! Other than that, this is a very fine volume full of text regarding all aspects of origami, very nice color & BW photos, and a great variety of diagrams. The text is completely in Russian, but I heard there is an English version in the making.
