Overall Impression

At last - an Israeli convention book!

The book is different from most origami convention books, as, besides diagrams, it also contains several articles about design, folding from crease-patterns and more, and also has many "fun facts" about the models and their subjects. Most contributors are local, and there are a few overseas contributors, too. Complexity ranges from simple to complex.

In the back of the book there are short biographies (with photos!) of all contributors. All the contents in the book are in both Hebrew and English. The inside covers display color photos from the convention in Ein-Gedi, and from the Israeli-Palestinian Peace Project.
