I had got this book when I was 15, now I'm 21 and it's still one of my most favorite books to date.
Maybe some people say it's a boring book, without complex models,... Yes, this is trust, but, when look at one book, we need pay attention to the date it is published. This book has first edition in 1974, and it's trully a revolution of Origami for its development now!!!

Given how long this book has been around, it still holds its own against more recent publications. Every model is excellent, and some are quite challenging, but if you stick at it, you will get superb results. If you enjoy origami, and have not yet done so, buy this book.

Origami enthusiasts! This book has history. It is written by a great pioneer, Robert Harbin. It consists of models by Patricia Crawford. I love it very much when it was published over 20 years ago and the charm of it has not diminished over the years even after learning so many new models. Strongly recommended.

I really like this book, as some of the models are beautifully elegant. A word of warning though, compared to most modern books Origami newcomers may be quickly overwhelmed with the lack of interim diagrams. Many drawings show in one stap what would take 5+ in other books. An solid foundation in folding is a pre-requisite.
