"Pick me up and take me home!" says the back of the book, and I see no reason why not to do just that. This unassuming little book packs many simple models, all Iona Stoian's original designs, into a very pleasing presentation.

While the models names, introduction and symbol guide (a handy translation tool!) are in 5 languages the diagrams themselves have no words, fully relying on the drawings to convey meaning. Not always a simple feat, but this books does it well. The design are simple yet expressive, in a range of subjects.

This book is definitely on my "recommend to new folders" list, and can be fun for experienced folders, as well.

There are 16 Origami Designs in Origami for All:
