4.0 out of 5 stars Some lovely intermediate level designs, 29 Nov 2007
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Favorite Animals in Origami (Dover Origami Papercraft) (Paperback)
The 12 animals diagrammed in this book are (in order of appearance) a whale, a seal, a walrus, a squirrel, a mink, a pig, a llama, a deer, a fox, a bull, a lion and an elephant. All designs in this book are of intermediate complexity. The designs become more complex as the book goes on. (I would put the last three in the high intermediate category.)

I wouldn't recommend this book for a complete beginner, as although there is a quick explanation of all the necessary folds, there isn't really a tutorial. The cover of this book is also fairly uninspiring, and there are no photographs of finished models anywhere in the book.

Everyone apart from complete beginners will be pleased to know that the models diagrammed in this book are really rather lovely. They are well designed and look far better than you'd guess from the cover. All the designs are clearly diagrammed, with explanatory phrases where necessary.

4.0 out of 5 stars The art of folding paper, 7 Aug 2002

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Favorite Animals in Origami (Dover Origami Papercraft) (Paperback)
A great book to use and follow if you like me have tried many times to produce the Eiffel tower or the humpback whale in paper... No seriously those are best left on postcards.
For those wishing to develop their skills or enjoy the delights of sharing the simple art of paper folding with their children this book is no disappointment.
Easy clear instructions which do and will produce the final effect the wonderful shape from a square piece of paper.
This book is for the none to average user of paper folding who wishes to prove they too can produce a thing of beauty from a piece of paper.
It opens up the world of Oragmi for all
Worth a look at and a buy
