    Excellent book for beginners

    Purchased this for a Japanese are curriculum plan for my art education class as a method of taking a cultural art form and teaching it to elementary children. Illustrations are clear and concise, easy to follow. Definitely recommend for anyone who wants to start learning the art of paper folding at any age.
