Overall Impression

This is a cute little book, containing Akiko Ishikawa's bird creations - and a bat. The model are simple to fold, the diagrams are delightful, hand drawn in full color, and a the end of the book are some notes and tips for assembling a "Senbazuru" - 1,000 cranes.

While the diagramming style strays somewhat from the Yoshizawa-Randlett diagramming conventions, especially regarding reverse-folds, the models are simple enough to figure out.

The book's best audience will be children and origami beginners.
