What book/publication is this model in?

Wil Chua said...

It is a book from Akira Yoshizawa.

I was looking for it just then only to find out that its lost. I must have borrow it and forgotten to take back.. :/

Anyway, heres a little description which might help. This Akira Yoshizawa books comes in 2 versions. One on humaniods and the other on animals. This snail is in the animal portion. The 2 books are in Japanese.

Hi all, This's Wil here, an origami enthusiast with his origami creations and folding attempts. I'm always looking out for interesting models to fold and am ever on the search for the perfect paper for my origami. So if you have any sources, do contact me :) Hoping to post my models here as well as sharing some of my crease patterns in the future! (From an origami enthusiast working hard in the day and folding hard at night) Cheers ;)
