Overall Impression

buy from origam-shop.com

Dinosaurs are a very popular subject in origami, and this is one of the best origami books in the subject, where the models are not too simple-looking, and yet are not too complex to fold.

With each model, comes its correct pronunciation, and details about the animal.

This book is now out-of-print, and has been replaced by Dinosaur Origami, which contains some of the same models and many new ones.
