Complete Origami by Eric Kenneway

Complete Origami Eric Kenneway Complete Origami by Eric Kenneway is not a typical origami book. This book contains information regarding many aspects of origami. It's an ABC of the art of origami. Each topic is discussed briefly with historical references and accompanying diagrams to demonstrate the topic at hand.

I really recommend this book for people who want to know more about origami and not simply how to fold origami. That being said, this book does have instructions to make over 100 projects. In many respects, Complete Origami is like this web site: it has lots of information and has diagrams.
