Overall Impression

This is a large volume containing lots and lots of origami representations of various molecular structures, including many types of atoms, isomers, a DNA molecule, vitamins, viruses and many more.

Origami-wise, the models divide mainly into modulars, constructed together with straws or paper, and tessellation-like models.

The book is full of photographs and explanatory text (in Japanese). The diagrams are nice and clear.

Nice to have if you're a tessellation freak or if you're into biology.
