First, I browsed this book and was really amazed how simple these projects are and decided to buy it because I was interested in origami as a hobby and it may help me practice, and do some for gift giving during the holidays and special occassions.

After a few days, I read the book and really enjoyed doing the projects. It takes practice to perfect the illustrated projects shown in this book. I really recommend this book if you want to make something for friends, family for any occassion. This is very practical and fun.

Format: Paperback
This is a very nice book which gives the basics of paper folding in easy-to-follow instructions and photographs. The illustrations are vivid, and the projects are creative and inspiring. It has been a very enjoyable "crafts-weekend" for me and my son following the projects in the book!

Marie Ono provides some lovely projects in this book, but, alas, the instructions are not always easy to follow. The use of photographs, rather than diagrams, to show readers what to do is not always successful: some of the photographs do not give a clear picture of the task to be accomplished. If you're willing to live with some frustration, or to just make the projects for which the instructions are clear, you can make some nice items.

Format: Paperback
The pictures are beautiful and give a sense of what you can do with very nice paper
Models are practical (boxes, envelopes, wrapper, small gif bag) plus usual decorative things.
Pictures are nice but don't help a lot when it comes to tricky part of the folding sequence.
Designed more for the eyes than for the finders
