Overall Impression

The little book is packed with some of the best origami masks ever created. Some humans, some animals, and some monsters.

The creators, with the most prominent being Gabriel Alvarez, make excellent use of both sides of the paper in creating intricate features and interesting characters.

The diagrams might be challenging for beginners, as they are hand-drawn, and sometimes involve many steps at-once, but the masks are worth the effort.

Highly recommended book.
