Overall Impression

buy from origam-shop.com

With even more lifelike insects than in his first origami-insects book: Origami Insects and their kin, Robert Lang is offering some of the most challenging models ever conceived. Your fingers are going to hurt, but the results are worth it!

This book is not for the feint of heart - and you cannot achieve good results with just any kind of paper.

Each model comes with its crease pattern, and with Lang's short design comments.
