With this handsome book, anyone can make striking works of origami. The twenty birds, beasts, bugs, and butterflies featured here were inspired by animals that appear in the works of art in the Metropolitan Museum. Starting with a simple-to-make butterfly, the pieces in the book become gradually more complex, so that even beginners will have mastered origami by the time they finish all the models. Appropriate for children and adults alike, the book includes a pocket filled with forty-five pieces of traditional origami paper.
