If you love origami and have the patience to try something intensely challenging this guide will help you create amazing origami. The directions and photographs are very helpful towards creating these fascinating designs. This is the most comprehensive book I have encountered on this type of origami. The one thing it cannot do is make my fingers more nimble. The folds and pleats are extremely challenging, but if you wish to take the time, the results can be awe-inspiring.
