Great book, fantastic pictures. Today the old publications of "The Grandmaster" are difficult to find, so this reprint is a cheap and easy way to get inside the Origami world of Akira Yoshizawa. At first sight you think the models are easy, but to get them right is quit challenging. If you can't read Japanese, don't worry, the diagrams are clear enough to understand without the text. Again a must have!
