Buddhist Origami: 15 Easy-to-make Origami Symbols for Gifts and Keepsakes Reviews
This book has some nicer looking projects than many of the simpler instructions for origami. These are simple but more interesting. I wish the crane was here is all. When I wanted to add that to my origami gift, I had to hunt for those directions.
Gave as gift.
This book is nicely laid out, and has several skill levels included. You need not be a Buddhist to appreciate the beauty of the things you can make. It would be a welcome addition to a a Buddhist's library, as well as to anyone who is serious about origami. I LOVE this book!!!
