In the origami world, cats were traditionally under-represented, and the few existing models were rather flat and lifeless. But thanks to modern folding techniques, it's possible to recapture the true charm of our feline companions. This book for origamists of all skill levels offers 20 original designs that range from a grinning Cheshire cat and a snoozing feline to a walking cat, a seated cat, a Halloween cat, and the smug cat that got the cream, as well as cats on an envelope, a bookmark, a greeting card, and other figures. Along with step-by-step directions and diagrams, each model features a full-color image of the finished cat. Projects are rated according to difficulty, and a brief introductory chapter explains folding techniques and suggestions for how to choose the most appropriate origami paper. These cute kitties, in addition to being fun to fold, make great little gifts for cat-fanciers.
