Overall Impression

buy from origam-shop.com

This book has become one of the "Holy Grails" of origami books. It's out-of-print and well sought after.
The models are very complex and detailed, and include many dinosaur species, plus 2 fantasy animals - a unicorn, and the best origami Pegasus I've ever seen.

In the back of the book there's a Japanese article by Kawahata about
creating models.

Update: The book has finally been republished by Gallery Origami House!
