Overall Impression

This is a collection of photographs of models displayed in one of the largest origami exhibitions in the world, held in Hangar-7, Salzburg, Austria in 2005. The artists featured in this exhibition come from all over the world, and represent all aspects of paper-folding. The book brings the models to life with superb quality photos and production.
Each model is accompanied by biographical information about its creator, and general information about the model itself.
Besides photos, the book contains several essays by some of the top names in origami, covering history, art and math.
I believe this book should be in the library of the serious origami aficionado.
