This book is aptly named!

* The challenge of theory
The 14 models are preceded by a few pages describing the design process of the model base. The use of circles and rivers is explained in detail, including optimizing the use of surfaces when creating the initial crease pattern. It is a good working basis for who wants to use this technique to manage the layout of the different elements of the future folding from a very technical, proven approach.

* the challenge of folding
The folding of each model is then described using a very detailed diagram, including up to almost 200 steps, some with sometimes several tens of folds, to repeat ... Incredible sequences, delicate technical gestures, a tinkling with details, the folder that I am went from astonishment to astonishment. To arrive at the end of the folding of a model is an answer to the challenge that is launched. The result is always nice to watch.

As much as I understand now how the « circles - rivers » technique allows to create the basis of the model, as much as I keep asking myself « But how does he (or she) find these folding sequences? ». The mystery may be lifted in a future book by the same author, who may reveal some of his secrets?

I recommend this book without hesitation, but it is clearly aimed at experienced folders.
