Overall Impression

This is the 3rd installment of the "Viva! Origami" series, showcasing many of the great models of the time (still great in our time!) by Japanese and Western creators. John Montroll's work is heavily featured, including several of his models not published anywhere else.

It's also interesting to see many variations on the same theme - in this case - crabs. There is plenty of text, which is probably very interesting - but it's in Japanese...

There are 85 Origami Designs in Origami La Era Nueva:
