Overall Impression

This is a really nice collection of Halloween-themed origami designs. Nick Robinson selected to feature models not commonly seen elsewhere (and one of them is mine!), creating a fresh anthology, even when few of the designs are quite old.

The book will be enjoyed by the absolute beginners as well as by more seasoned folders, as it progresses from the quite simple models to those involving challenging moves. As always with Robinson's books, the diagramming style is very clear and approachable. A must have for your next spooky event!
