Twenty enchanting designs are presented in three easy-to-follow stages: first, bases and folds. Next, combining bases and folds and learning to interpret those line drawings. Finally, learning to fold origami paper into real, elegant origami animals and objects: butterflies, swans, dogs, and more By the end of the book, readers will understand how to read those line drawings and explore the wonderful world of origami with excitement and confidence.
