Add a new dimension of realism to your origami Using innovative folding techniques, matched with clear, easy-to-follow directions, you will almost feel the ground shake when the apatosaurus is around, and hear the baying of the coyote as it howls under the moon. These and 23 other projects will provide endless hours of enjoyment for both the beginner and advanced folder.
As an added bonus, a brief lesson in wet folding is given at the beginning of the book; this technique is used by many folders to make the models more permanent and life-like.
