This is the first English origami book I ever had, and when I first saw it. It blew my mind. The animals are so detailed - and all from a square!
It is the first of a long line of books from Montroll, and I still see it as one of the best, even though most of the animals are "open backed" - and some of the model becomes thickish. My favorites are the Pegasus and the Mountain Goat.
The diagrams are hand drawn, unlike Montroll's later books, but still quite clear.
