Overall Impression

buy from origam-shop.com

Since Nicolas Terry appeared on the origami scene only a few years ago, he has made a great contribution to the art with his excellent website, featuring the work of many designers from around the world, and now with this intriguing book of his own original creations.

Terry's models have a unique style. While being quite complex, they are far from being "dry". They have a cartoonish quality, and are very expressive and fun. The book contains much more than diagrams. Each model comes with paper recommendations (as most of the models cannot really be folded out of plain origami paper), size ratio, even estimated folding time... Terry describes the creative process for each model, displays its crease-pattern, and offers challenges and general "thoughts behind the folds".

The book ends with a few crease-pattern challenges with some explanatory notes. A hidden feature in the book is a "secret code", which, once found and emailed to the author, grants access to a secret page on his website, containing exclusive diagrams and some more treats.

I would not recommend this book to beginners, as the majority of the models are complicated to fold, and require some sculptural abilities, but advanced folders will no-doubt benefit from the fresh ideas expressed here.
