The second in Robert Harbin's series of 4, this book was published in English as More Origami or New Adventures in Origami. It was my first origami book, which I perused until the spine broke.
As are the other books in the series, this volume is an excellent showcase of the international origami talent in the early 1970s, containing works from leading folders in that time, with Argentina's Ligia Montoya and Harbin himself more prominently featured. Many of the models are of highly original subjects not often seen in origami. A couple of my favorites would be Harbin's skier and Elias' knight in armor.
The diagramming style can be very concise and challenging at times, having many steps appear in one drawing, I believe it is still accessible, though, and that this book is well worth the effort for the originality of the models within. I stuck with it as a kid and am still folding many decades later?
