Origami Fold-by-Fold Review

Origami Fold-by-Fold Review

This is it. If you (like me) were looking for a book not just about origami but instead one that takes someone from nothing little-to-nothing, and helps them learn and grow their skills, this is the book you're looking for. The text, photos, and plentiful,...
