Overall Impression

buy from origam-shop.com

This is one of the most difficult origami books out there! Lang's models are full of steps you struggle with for a long time, and then get to repeat them several times over... But the results are quite satisfying. Many of these insects can be folded from regular origami paper, but thinner paper, or tissue-foil, is recommended for better results. If you like a challenge, grab this book!
