About the Author
Benjamin John Coleman, also known as Benagami, first found success in the business world and then turned to teaching math as a creative outlet. An Origami book he received from a friend brought back childhood memories of paper folding and renewed his fascination with the craft. Always intrigued by the complexity and simplicity of Origami, Ben has most recently devoted his time to making bonsai botanical sculptures from recycled paper that he calls Origami Bonsai. He has published a book titled Origami Bonsai. Ben maintains http://www.benagami.com and http://www.origamibonsai.org, and he publishes online The Origami Bonsai Electronic Magazine. He lives in Pawtucket, Rhode Island.

The selected models are nice, and not all the same ones you see in a lot of beginning-intermediate books. There's a nice variety. I saw "lily" and thought "oh boy, the same old-same old lily" - but it's not, it's a different lily. You can fold a dragon or a T-Rex - not the million-step ones - but simpler ones but they still look good. And I haven't found any mistakes thus far; everything works as it should. My models look pretty good. I love my pigeon, he's really cute and stands up very nicely. I'm more than half-way through the book, and am confident that I'll be able (thanks to the DVD!) to complete every model in the book. I have a variety of origami books, and I can't make that statement about any of them except this one. No, I take that back - "The Amazing Book of Origami" (Jon Tremaine) is very good, and I'll probably be able to fold everything in that too.
None of my local friends are into origami, and there's no origami club in my town, so this book with the DVD is a wonderful substitute for group support and help. The book also comes with some origami paper, not a whole lot, and I haven't used it yet; but it looks and feels like nice paper, and appropriate for the models in the book. I wish more origami books came with DVDs; seeing the folds in motion while hearing audio about them really makes a difference. Definitely a 5-star choice!
