This is, simply put, a stunning book. Anyone capable of complex folding should own it, and less advanced folders should buy it so they have a goal to aim for! The diagrams are clear, the models are amazing. There are full-color glossy photos in the beginning of the book showing examples of all the models. (Softcover.)
