Overall Impression

buy from origam-shop.com

An excellent book! This is a collection of realistic animal models.

The best results for these models can be achieved by wet-folding. The Author recommends specific types of paper for each model. This is not a beginner's book, some experience is required.

The diagrams are clear, bi-colored, and for each model there is a recommendation for the type and color of paper to use, and the result model size for a given starting paper size.

Another feature is a table of relative size in real life between the featured animals.
