SUMMARY- I can't begin to express how amazed and impressed I am with this book but I'm going to try. First, it wasn't at all what I had expected. I came across it on ebay and ordered it on a whim - my mom named me after a very little known character from the Arthurian tales, a daughter of Arthur who became a knight in her own right, so I've always had a bit of fascination for the tales and what they represent. I figured I'd get a lot of artwork based on the stories with preprinted papers and some generic folds. Nope. What I got was a well thought out and wonderfully inventive system of characters, their accessories and the buildings they lived in what the author describes as proportional origami. You get to build your own playsets - which means you get to change things up however you like, and the people can be whatever color you wish them to be because you decide what papers you want to use. The models are creative and quite doable and there's so MUCH here. I am going to keep my eyes open for the rest of his books. This one really jazzed me!
