Origami by Makiko Ikeda & Shun Ikeda
This origami book shows basic folding techniques and is a good start for those who have little experience with the art of origami. The first section deals with symbols and folds and has large, clearly labelled diagrams. The instructions are easy to follow. You will learn about the valley fold, the mountain fold, the inside fold, the cover fold and the staircase fold. The projects begin with the simplest folds and finish up with the more complex folds. Learn to make animal faces, a house, a piano, a cicada, a penguin, an airplane, a turtle, a pig, a nodding dog, a balloon, a crab, a star-shaped box, a crane, a jumping frog, and a top.It's lots of fun.
