The Dollar Bill Origami Book is a welcome addition to the collection of dollar bill origami books. Janessa Munt is a respected money-folder in the origami community and shares some of her wonderful dollar bill designs in this book. The diagrams included range from beginning-level origami to more complex models that are more appropriate for advanced folders. While the appeal of this book spans across all origami skill levels, this also means that beginners will likely find some models too challenging, and experts will likely find some models easy or uninteresting. Many dollar bill adaptations of traditional models are presented, which are great for beginning folders, but which won't likely intrigue more advanced origamists.Though some space is spent rehashing traditional origami models, most of the book consists of original origami designs of Janessa's. Many models make clever use of the patterns on a dollar bill to make eyes or other features. Janessa is a clever designer, and the designs in general have fun and intuitive folding sequences. Many designs are quick to fold, and some are more challenging, like the mermaid and t-rex.The quality of the book is great. The paper is thick and good quality, and it is printed in full color. Each diagram features a full-page photo of the folded model. The diagrams are done by Marcio Noguchi, who is well-known in the origami community for creating high-quality diagrams. The diagrams are, with a few exceptions, clear and easy to follow.Overall, The Dollar Bill Origami Book offers a creative look at dollar bill folding and offers many diagrams and good quality for a fairly low price. If you are an origami enthusiast, a fan of Janessa Munt, or a beginning folder interested in folding money, this book would be great.
This book is great! The designs are fun and the instructions are easy to follow along. I love folding The models for gifts for family and friends and I occasionally will fold a goat or a bull dog for a tip when I go out to eat. Can't wait for more designs.
Such an awesome book! The designs are fun and the diagrams are easy to follow. The book has great pictures too! As someone who enjoys origami but never really tried dollar bill origami, I found this book to be very helpful and engaging - it has the perfect variety of difficulty level.
Grest quality .. numerous choices with very easy instructions..
EDIT: I like how the "fake" reviewers say they love folding these designs for gifts and tips! This book has been out for about a week now and the fake reviewer sounds he been folding them for years. Probably has been. Right, Dad of Janessa? You should be wary of fake reviews like these, it should be illegal. Like her claiming that these are original designs. Now here is my original review witch is accurate and truthful:There is only about 4 ORIGINAL designs in this whole book and creating a square out of 2 dollars and folding something IS NOT money origami. Of the 4 or so designs the "might" be original, one of them she just changes one little thing and calls it something else. Meaning there is a manatee, walrus and seal that are exactly the same except a fold or two. The rest in the book are just folds you can find on the internet anywhere.
