Overall Impression

This is a beautiful book, and the models are great, too!

All models relate to Hawaiian heritage, and most of them are flowers of the island. The flower models are some of the best flower models I've seen, and the other models are also very good, intermediate+. The gecko is my favorite - with fingers - and looks very nice.

The diagrams are of great quality, there are amazing color photographs of all the models (and the author explains what papers she used to fold them), and there is a section in the end about selecting papers, layering (back-coating) and wet-folding.
