Internationally renowned author John Montroll has significantly increased the origami repertoire with his original designs. In addition to his models, this collection features the inventions of other origami artists, including a pop-up horse card, a colorful horse and bookmark, a centaur, and a splendid variety of other whimsical designs.
Complete instructions with diagrams include full-color illustrations of the finished models. The selection ranges from simple to advanced; most are complex but not overly difficult. Many of the figures feature distinctive details — legs, wings, antennae, and other characteristics — that make them especially fun and challenging.
Ideal for children but equally appropriate for beginning paperfolders of all ages, this excellent introduction to origami takes you step-by-step through twenty-eight festive projects.

All the designs have an interesting look and a pleasing folding sequence and are based on unique mathematical equations.
