My review: More Mormon Origami by Todd Huisken
I was given a pdf copy so I could review and be part of More Mormon Origami blog tour. So I read this book in bed on my lap top, not a good place to make origami. I can't even make a paper plane.
I love the step by step instructions and pictures of each step. I looked at all these designs and marvel that anyone could figure out how to make them let alone fold and make out of paper.
I also liked how they had three levels of difficulty. I will be always stuck on 1 level, but that's okay their are 11 designs for level 1.
there are eight for level 2 and level 3 5 temple designs.
On each page of designs their are trivia about the designs which were all brand new stuff that I did not know. Like city creek was used to power a water wheel to make the organ on Temple Square go before electricity.
I would have to say that this is another book that I would want a real book and not a ebook personally if I had a choice.
I do not see me taking up a Origami as a hobby anytime soon.
