Overall Impression

This little book, with an introduction by Brigitte Bardot, contains Gerard Ty Sovann's collection of endangered species in origami. With unique folding procedures and satisfying three-dimensional models, I find the book quite enjoyable. Especially working on the first model - the brown grouper, which takes the traditional samurai helmet, and turns it into a really nice 3D fish! The book itself is gorgeous, with full-color throughout, and beautiful photos of the finished models from multiple angles. A really nice book for the intermediate folder, with some great projects for practicing wet-folding with.
