Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Origami is a craft with a low entry threshold—all you need is something flat, square, and foldable. Nguyen's (Über Origami) quirky approach is to use square cocktail napkins to create standard origami animals and a few party-ready creations, including a high heel and a baseball cap. If you're planning to try this as a bar or party trick, you'll need to practice—the more complex creations require 30-plus steps. The approach is illustration heavy, so beginners looking for textual explanations may be disappointed, but visual learners and origami veterans should be able to follow along. With a starter set of square cocktail napkins.
