Skill Level From simple to complex
Clear diagrams? Yes - hand drawn
Tinted diagrams (to show 2 sides of paper)? Yes
Photos of completed models? Yes - in beautiful scenarios
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, one model uses cuts, and one model is 2 piece.

Overall Impression

The book is divided to "Sea", "Land" and "Air" sections, featuring the small critters in each environment. This is a collection of delightful little models. I find Giunta's work to be comparable to Akira Yoshizawa's, in that his models have a certain liveliness and character to them.
