Here's a summary of dashed lines used in books that I've found public-domain scans of online: Maria Kraus-Boelte, "The Kindergarten Method" (1882) uses dashed lines for both active folds and precreased marks. T. de Moulidars, "Les Grand Encyclopedie des Joyeux" (1888?) uses dashed lines for active f...

Something I'd be interested in trying is a two-way frame that would allow both sides of the tessellation to be viewed. But after some playing around, I realized that conventional frames don't work like that and I'll have to build my own. Any ideas for where I might find information about building fr...
Doing some research on the traditional waterbomb-base tulip-- seems it was introduced to the Western origami scene in the 80s, and is either of Vietnamese or Thai origin, depending on who you ask. I was wondering, has anybody run across evidence of traditional folding in Southeast Asian countries? I...

I'm a Music Composition student in my junior year at University of California, Davis. Recently I've become interested in the history and pedagogy of origami through my work as a freelance origami artist-- one client I had asked about the copyright status of traditional models, and I was surprised ho...
Realistically, I think we will only be able to translate a very small number of posts-- so perhaps translation shouldn't be a user-requested feature, but a moderator-controlled one. If somebody posts in a language other than english, a moderator might run it through a machine translator to check tha...

I had the university library order a copy soon after your blog post, and I have to say this is a really fascinating book even though I don't know German yet-- thanks for the tip Nick! Hopefully I'll pick up a little German while I work through it...

I learned origami almost entirely from books, after being exposed to the basics during school, and didn't start folding from the internet or with other people until I was fairly technically proficient. I don't think I had the ideal starting sequence, but for lack of something else to start discussio...
Ben, I've got two Imagiro articles I wrote about origami tessellations history-- the first is about waterbomb/flagstone tessellations, and the second is about corrugations, though it needs to be rewritten. I can send them to you now if you'd like, but if you can wait then I'll post a revised version...
