Extract from the foreword by Quentin Trollip:

"...... The geometrical nature of his designs makes reference points easy to locate and allows models to be perfectly reproduced every time. The folding sequences are fluid and easy to follow. Through his meticulousness, Tetsuya has managed to ensure that you do not need to be an expert folder to be able to fold these complex designs!
As if the diagramming of thirteen impressive and mostly complex designs  was not enough of a challenge for him, Tetsuya has also explained his design process of each of these wonderful creatures. Origami design has come a long way since the days of the traditional bases, and there is an ever expanding number of new and exciting origami designers out there. Despite this, there is only a limited amount of instruction available on the topic of origami design. One of the main reasons for this is obvious: to put ideas into words that most people can understand is very difficult! And that is, in my opinion, what makes this book unique. Tetsuya has found a way, using clever illustrations, to explain how his brain works while designing."
