|Skill Level||From simple to complex|
|Clear diagrams?||Photographic diagrams|
|Tinted diagrams (to show 2 sides of paper)?||Yes|
|Photos of completed models?||Yes|
|Is there indication to the model size resulting from size of starting paper?||No|
|Are the models "Pure" origami (From a single square - no cuts)?||Some are from rectangles, some are modular|
This is a nice collection of models from the whole wide spectrum of origami varieties. From simple, traditional models, through modular geometric creations to complex pleated works.
There are no diagrams in the book, but all steps are shown in photographs. I personally find this to be less clear than using standard origami diagramming notations, because when using photographs, the reader has to "fill in the blanks" between steps. Still, the steps are very well-made, and the production quality of the book is quite high. Also, the book opens with a thorough introduction to all bases and basic techniques, so I would recommend it to beginners.
