Overall Impression

This publication is also known as a paperback called "Paper Animals". Both these books carry the exact same contents. The book starts with a very good introductory guide. There are fantastic color photographs of all the models, and the diagramming quality is excellent. Difficulty ranges from the very simple to the complex, so there's something for everyone. The models are arranged in "scenes" depicting various habitats. The book is currently out of print, but can still be found here and there from second-hand book dealers.
