Mythical Beings (Origami Today)

ISBN: 0060968664
File format: pdf file
No. of pages: 96 pages

Beautiful, but difficult - not for beginners. The patterns contained here are: Ouroboros, Wizard and Witch, Winged Dragon, Gargoyle, Daedalus, Pegasus, Flapping Dragon, Woodland Elf, Centaur, Rearing Dragon, Shiva, Unicorn, Long-tailed Dragon and Cererus. Each of these designs is a beautiful conversation piece. Each is also frustrating and difficult to fold. These are for advanced folders. Many of these designs are for animals that have four legs. If you have folded a four legged animal before then you know what I am talking about. Its tricky. If you have never attempted a four legged animal then you are probably not at the level to use this book. I thought that the difficulty I had folding these was because of the complexity of the pieces. Reading other comments here about the inaccurate diagrams has inspired me to try and reattempt some of these intuitively. Whatever my problem was it is likely to be a problem for you too, so be careful unless you are the origami champ.

Throughout the book are full page color pictures of each creature you could fold. These made it clearer to see where I was going and help motivationally. Each is posed in a little mythical scene.

I think that I was not at a level for this book. I am intermediate at origami and usually can work through more difficult patterns after a few attempts. This book is a wonderful book if you are advanced at origami, but not for beginner and barely for intermediate
