GREAT Origamic Architecture Instructions

I hear from lots of readers about how frustrated they are with the sketchy directions in Origamic Architecture books.

This week I've been reading through Laura Badalucco's book, Kirigami. It has the best introduction to the basics of O.A. that I have seen anywhere. She devotes an entire chapter, thirty pages, to technique!

See?

No surprise, it's out of print. Geez. But not so old that it's impossible to get your hands on a copy. I'm hoping to find one for list price ($16.95) but maybe I'm dreaming. [UPDATE: Just ordered it for $10.76, including shipping! Woohoo.]
