"The combination of butterflies, origami and Michael LaFosse cannot be anything but magical. I guarantee that this book will enchant you."—Guy Kawasaki, author of Enchantment and former chief evangelist at Apple
"LaFosse and Alexander have built up an enviable reputation for producing top quality origami products, carefully and expertly crafted for folders of all levels. Their work is an inspiration."—Nick Robinson, author of Origami Kit For Dummies and World's Best Origami
"These pages present a kaleidoscope of colorful origami butterflies. The authors uphold the philosophy of Akira Yoshizawa sensei, who opened LaFosse's eyes to origami's endless possibilities, which you can now also explore."—Dave Brill, former president of the British Origami Society, and author of Brilliant Origami
"LaFosse and Alexander have observed and passionately captured the essence of the butterfly with their exceptional designs. These magnificent butterflies undergo their metamorphosis in the authors' hands."—Reiko Nishioka, director of education at the Morikami Museum and Japanese Gardens
"This book lends itself well to folders of all levels—including but definitely not exclusively for beginners. The designs are beautiful, elegant, a total eye-catcher. Models that you are already in love with are always so nice to fold—especially when you can achieve results similar to the ones presented in the photos. This is so true for Michael LaFosse's butterflies. The designs require only quite basic folds, and can be completed within minutes.
I will end this review…with a definite call to action: buy, buy, buy! The first buy: for yourself; the second buy: for your origami friend; and the third buy: for that person you want to introduce to origami. All three will be a great investment with a return of much happiness, hours of pure enjoyment, and awe of the wonderful work by Michael LaFosse and Richard Alexander!"—The Fold
"Noted origami experts LaFosse and Alexander focus on folded-paper butterflies in this elegant how-to guide. After presenting the basic architecture for an origami butterfly, the authors provide a number of variations, most named after well-known origami enthusiasts. Fully illustrated step-by-step directions for each butterfly are included, and five hours of video instruction are provided on the enclosed DVDs."—Library Journal
"You cannot go wrong with any book by these authors, much less with this delightful collection of origami butterflies!" —Origami Spirit
