Overall Impression

I have been a fan of Yoo Tae Yong's work for a while, so was excited to hear about his collection of original works coming out. Yong subscribes to the Genuine Origami style: precise folding using geometrical landmarks, with little to no shaping required. Most designs use both sides of the paper, taking advantage of the 2 colors in the finished model.

This book collects his old and new designs. A few have been included in other publications, but most are new to me. Complex folding abilities are required, as the models incorporate interesting, finger-busting folding processes. All are expertly diagrammed, though. One of my favorite moves in the book is the creation of the chameleon's head - which pops out almost complete with a single pull of a layer.

Highly recommend this book for anyone looking for a fun origami challenge.
