Overall Impression

buy from origam-shop.com

Two of Japan's origami giants have joined forces to create this fantastic book, which will appeal to any complex folder. The Origami Tanteidan's "Insect wars" have brought about not only fully detailed insect species, but even the distinct gender of each variety. The models in this book, while complex, are quite foldable, and can be folded from almost any paper.
