Origamists in search of new and interesting challenges will find them in this treasury of 104 unusual origami projects with an international flavor.
Paperfolders can select from a rich array of subjects from countries around the world and create such unique objects as a legionnaire's hat, a Buddha, a Celtic helmet, Lohengrin's swan, Persian slippers, a geisha and a Dutchwoman, a Chinese junk, and a suit of armor, as well as a vase, frog, bird in flight, stork, houseboat, horse, elephant, and more.
A useful list of symbols indicates basic folding instructions, while easy-to-follow, step-by-step diagrams and captions accompany each project, allowing paperfolders at all skill levels to complete the folding process successfully.

A book which is surprisingly full of unique and beautiful designs. Some are a bit hard to follow though so it is not a book for the beginner. I totally love this book though because it has things in it that I've never seen before, and not been able to find on youtube/other books either! Even when I purposefully search for the designs. The cover does not do it justice so please do not judge from the designs pictured there.
