I was very impressed with the size of the book, especially for the price.
I loved how each origami fold is rated so you know which ones are good to start with & which are a challenge.
I found the book very intriguing. I've always had an interest in origami so I'm very excited to receive this book!
I tried a couple of the simpler folds to start out & did great! I can't wait to do more.
