  1. Very perfectly folded!

    I have a lot of Fuse’s books…I’ve found that she does repeat models among the books. Does this one have some unique models? I am considering it and just don’t know if is worth getting.

    • Thank you!
      This sonobe is the only one model I folded from this book and I believe I’ve never seen it in Fuse’s other books… Apart of this model (and a few variations of it) the book contains one traditional model, lots of cubes (some of them are published in her other books) and a lot of models with inserts (it’s what I call Composite origami, modular origami which involves different types of units). I’m not a big fan of composite models so I can’t say if they can be found in other books because usually I just don’t pay much attention to this sort of models.

      • Thank you for the information, Maria! It is very helpful. I have a book of hers with lots of “composite” models that I haven’t tried at all yet so I may pass on this book.
