Although my primary interest is in making thousand crane plaques (which are not included), the models are nonetheless beautiful. Someday, I hope to be able to make their spectacular Seikaiha (Blue Ocean Wave). Fortunately, however, the book says that the Tsuri Fune (FIshing Boat) is fairly easy to make -- and it, too, is very beautiful.
In short, I love this book, and highly recommend it to anyone interested in this form of origami. It offers a wide variety of beautiful cranes, and uniquely beautiful ways to make and display them.
Before buying this book you should know how to fold a paper crane. Although the book refreshes the basics, it is really for the intermediate to advanced paper folder.
Over 25 projects are included, each becoming progressively more complex. These include circles & strings of connected cranes made by partially cutting a large sheet of paper.
Paper types & presentation are also discussed briefly. A large sheet of beautiful patterned washi paper is included. Information is also included on ordering additional sheets from an array of different patterns.
