Step-by-step directions and diagrams.
Instructions enabling the reader to reproduce the charming origami works of Kunihiko Kasahara, which are filled with the artist's love of his art and his sparkling sense of humor.
This was one of my first origami books. I now have several dozen origami books, but I still come back to this for a few models every now and then.
It is a very good book for learning/teaching the basics, and the models reflect the attribute I most admire in Kasahara's work - elegance. Be they simple or complicated, Mr. Kasahara's models have just the right balance of detail, to make them look full, and restraint, to avoid looking forced.
This makes an excellent introduction to origami, not only in its instruction of the techniques of paper-folding but also in the esthetics of what makes a model successful.
