With origami - It's almost like solving a geometric puzzle.

Just think about it - When it comes to origami - With the acquired skills - All you need to do is fold a square of paper just so - And - Presto! - You have succeeded in bringing both geometry and art so beautifully together.

Comprehensively compiled (with colourful illustrations and easy-to-follow instructions) by Steve Biddle - "The New Origami" will surely give you the satisfied pleasure of crafting something (like a UFO?) out of a piece of paper, thus turning it into a highly decorative reward.
