This is a small book containing information about the traditional Japanese origami crane, as well as full instructions for making one. The text teaches about the crane's place in Japanese culture, tells the story of Sadako Sasaki, and gives ideas for papers to use and for projects to make with the finished models. I usually find the crane to be somewhat challenging for beginners, and the instructions are overall good and detailed, although I feel like the do skim-over the reverse-fold for the head. The book comes with 48 tear-out origami papers.

Giamah
My niece works with physically ill children. This book was the inspiration for a party. The children all participated in folding paper cranes and they enjoyed hearing the story as a " read aloud" book. Along with the beautiful illustrations, this book has become one of their favorites.

Siramath
The story is inspiring, and the papers in the back, to use for folding cranes, are quite beautiful. It took me awhile to 'get it,' but after that I folded a crane a day for two weeks as a kind of meditation. Very satisfying.

Perilanim
Compact summary of a touching story. Would like a revised edition with history of origami and inclusion of the 5-6 other ways to fold a crane.

Kardana
This is a great book! The instructions are easy to follow with pictures included and the paper is just lovely. This got me hooked on making origami cranes while living in Japan! :-)

Wetiwavas

[Full Disclosure: The publisher, Stone Bridge Press, kindly sent me a review copy of this book in July 2011.]

I'm an origami teacher since 1998, an avid collector of origami books and origami paper.

The softcover book measures approx. 7.5" x 7"; the chiyogami paper measures about 7" x 7".

This is an unusual origami book because the first 12 sheets (24 pages) are printed on glossy, clay-coated pages but the remaining 48 sheets (96 pages) of chiyogami are printed on matte paper. The half-inch gutter allows the book to lay flat. Don't be misled by the 120 page count--remember to divide that in half to get the true count of the book = 60 sheets.

I felt the design scale of some patterns overwhelmed the small 7" sheet. There are a variety of floral, animal, geometric, abstract patterns and one the reverse side a good balance of muted pastel and brilliant vivid colors.

Here's what I observed when I tore out one sheet to fold a crane:
1. my sheet was *not* square (minus one star),
2. *not* clay-coated but lightweight (plus one star),
3. feels thinner than plain Japanese kami,
4. 48 different non-repeating design front and back (nice!)
5. perforated edge for easy removal (plus one star)
6. not micro-perforated; leaving a noticeably deckled edge (minus one star),
7. sheet folds well and creases holds a crisp edge (plus one star).

The well-loved origami crane is notoriously difficult for beginners to perfect because of the petal fold. This is a great introduction to learn the origami crane because not only does the text accompany the diagrams, there is some information on live cranes, cranes in art and Sadako Sasaki and nine crane projects. I have a minor quibble that the diagram perfectly show how to fold the neck and tail without using inside-reverse folds but glossed over how to inside-reverse fold the crane's head.

There are instructions how string a thousand cranes and the address where to send the cranes for the Hiroshima Peace Memorial (I didn't know that the cranes must be strung together to be accepted at the Hiroshima International School!).

If you are an origami purist for 90-degree perfect 6" square sheets right out of the package, you may be disappointed by the not-so-square 7" chiyogami sheets. However, this book works nicely for the origami enthusiast who loves to collect inspiring, beautiful paper.
