Through a sequence of folds, without cutting or gluing, make a menagerie of more than 2 dozen animals ranging from a simple and graceful dragonfly to a camel. All it takes is a few square pieces of paper and this all-color, bestselling, essential primer to the ancient art of origami. Detailed photographs and sequential illustrations walk beginners through each of the ten basic forms, and help them experience the challenge and creative pleasure of fashioning a crane, peacock, squirrel, elephant, rhinoceros, crocodile, spider, snail, fish, and other creatures. All the traditional rules of this classic craft are obeyed here, and there's valuable advice on choosing the paper, folding correctly, making combination folds, and reading the symbols in the instructions.
