About the Author
John Montroll is respected for his work in Origami throughout the world. His published work has significantly increased the global repertoire of original designs in Origami. John is also acknowledged for new techniques and ground-breaking bases. TheAmerican Origami master is known for being the inspiration behind the single-square, no cuts, no glue approach in Origami. Each model that John designs has a meticulously developed folding sequence. John's long-standing experience allows him to accomplish a model in lesser number of steps rather than plenty. It is his constant endeavor to give the reader a pleasing folding experience.
As a young child, Min Sung Ku dreamed of becoming a comic book illustrator. At six years old, he drew a picture of Superman standing behind the American flag. He has since achieved his childhood dream, having illustrated popular licensed comics properties like the Justice League, Batman Beyond, Spider-man, Ben 10, Phineas & Ferb, the Replacements, the Proud Family, Krpyto the Superdog, and, of course, Superman. Min lives in Southern California with his lovely wife and their beautiful twin daughters, Elisia and Eliana.

Second, the instructions need an overhaul. For some reason, the instructions to the start (pointing the arrow away from you and on the back of the paper) are in the middle of the book! Almost impossible to find.
Third, it is bizarre to me that the instructions do not correlate in any way to the colour of both sides of the actual paper.
If you're pretty good at origami already, and I don't mean paper cups and hats, then this might be a good buy for you. I bought this to get my kids interested and they want me to make them. But they are too complicated, the instructions too poorly designed, or I'm dumber than I thought.
However, some caveats. If you or your intended recipient is new to origami, this isn't the place to start. As an adult I've been doing origami with children for awhile, and have folded most projects in Easy Origami (also by John Montroll) without too much difficulty. However, the easiest rated projects in this book are roughly as hard as the hardest in that one, and borderline too difficult for me. I attempted Green Lantern's symbol, (difficulty rating of 1 Star out of 3,) struggled, never got the final squash fold just right, and in the end the design wasn't placed just as pictured. It will likely be frustrating for someone with little to no previous Origami experience and skill. Get some practice, then try this. Also, since the designs are significantly less fun without the special paper, you'll want to practice before using it up. Definitely have extra on hand for practice when you get/give this book - preferably 8" one sided Origami paper to best match what's in this book.
Overall it's a great gift for a superhero fan - IF they already are into Origami. Otherwise, there's the potential for frustration.
