Thank you so much for sending me your book “World’s Best Origami”! (one of Eric’s designs is in it – Nick) Unfortunately I am not skillful as my brother Eric and unable to fold most of the models you describe in your book.
It’s a pity, but perhaps I’ll progressively succeed folding some of them using your instructions. As an illustration, you will find enclosed my first step, reaching level 1. Maybe Eric is laughing about this, somewhere, considering it’s a joke.
