Origami to Astonish and Amuse by Jeremy Shafer

cover

This book has something for everyone. If you don't have it yet, buy it! It's worth every cent. The difficulty ranges from very simple to very complex and the models reflect the author's unique sense of humour. This book is definitely one of the best. Reading it you sometimes can't stop laughing. Most of the models are action models of some sort - optical illusions, snapping venus fly traps, working nailclippers...
