This is a large collection of Yoshizawa's work, with themes ranging from the animal kingdom to Japanese myth and folklore.
The inspiring photographs in this book are a sufficient reason to buy it, with the models arranged in beautiful compositions. Although many of the photographed models are not diagrammed in the book, there are still many diagrams for Yoshizawa's models. As always with Yoshizawa's designs, while the folding sequence may look simple enough, getting to fold the model right and breath life into them is quite challenging.
