Origami Europe is an ambitious collaborative project spearheaded by the British Origami Society, collecting over 60 designs from origami societies all over Europe, and bringing together a slew of creations from different designers, covering all styles and movements in contemporary origami.

Each different society chose its best designs to send, which makes for a diverse collection, with known classics alongside new offerings. A short biography of each society and submitting members accompanies each submission.

The book puts me in mind of convention books: big in scope, designers, themes, diagramming styles and difficulty levels from all across the board. However, as everything here went through a highly selective process, it's a cut above such books.

There are 65 Origami Designs in Origami Europe:
