Idiots's Guide: Geometric Origami Kit

This project is published by Alpha Books, part of the Penguin & Dorling Kindersley empire. The book comes in a box and is spiral bound with an outer sleeve, probably the perfect combination for an origami book. The page format is 7.5 x 9 inches and comes with 80 sheets of (gently) patterned paper.

The layout is clean, clear and attractive and each design is credited on the appropriate page - something I always ask for, but don't always get. There's a wide range of designs and I went to town on the assembly sections, adding shading to enhance the 3D illusion. It's taken me a while to master this, but I feel I'm about there now.

I also supplied all the photos in the book (and on the cover).
