Origami - the fine art of paper folding. It is an art form that a lot of people are familiar with in one way or another. Like take myself for example, I really like making lucky stars. There is something calming about folding the paper over and over and ending up with a tiny little star. Then you can fill up a jar with all of your little star creations and give it as a gift or keep it for yourself. But enough about folding little stars, this book doesn't teach you to do that. Instead, it teaches you how to fold things having to do with the DC Super Heroes. You know? Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, etc etc etc. Those guys. This particular origami book contains the directions to complete 46 different projects. Some of them are fairly simple and others are much more complex. Each project comes with step by step directions in the form of pictures showing you what and were to make the next fold. And, of course, there are pictures of the finished project so you can see if your origami piece came out like it should have. You may be wondering about paper, but you don't need to. This book is actually quite thick and that is because a good chunk of this book is actually paper for you to use in the projects. 96 pieces in total! Definitely adding to the value of this book. And the paper is the paper that you need for the projects, not just random pieces with various designs. All in all, I am impressed with this origami book. It is going to give me hours of entertainment! Though it will take some practice on my part to get these designs down...
