This is the best origami book I own. "Encyclopedia" is a terrible name. It makes you think it has lots and lots of patterns. What it actually is is a series of projects designed to show you origami works, so that you can design your own things and alter patterns to suit what you want or need. After doing just the beginning exercises I've been able to modify a couple of patterns to suit a particular project. If you really want to learn origami, rather than just learning to make projects, this is the book for you ( )
