In her second origami book (the first being, naturally, Origami for the First Time, 2003), Smith takes liberties with the centuries-old art form, artistic licenses with which some purists might argue. First is the reliance on the glue stick to adhere, affix, and otherwise attach flower petals and stems. Second is the lack of insistence on using specially prepared origami papers (illustrations shown seem to even advocate using paper U.S. monies as a base). The thirtysomething floral patterns run the gamut from realistic to imaginary; cyclamens could readily fool the eye, while orange twinkles are clearly cleverly folded paper imitating nature. Instructions, too, sometimes demand a second or third read, even though all explanations are captured in sequential color photographs. Yet for those wishing to experiment, flowers that never wilt might just be a good alternative to the real thing. Metric conversion chart appended. Barbara Jacobs

Don't be put off by my low rating if it is what you want - it seems like a nice book for the subject it covers.
