Primer libro de John Montroll, con este libro se renueva el interés por el Origami y es un buen inicio para cualquiera que quiera adquirir esta afición.
Las explicaciones básicas son sencillas y
permiten al lector dominar los principios básicos de los dobleces, posteriormente, conforme avanzamos en el libro, cada figura va siendo más complicada, así, la primera figura, el pez, es muy sencilla de doblar, y la última, el grillo, requiere la experiencia de haber doblado las figuras anteriores.
Se aprecia la belleza y el detalle de cada una de las figuras.
