Re: Origami do Brazil

He participates in another website: http://origami-brasil.blogspot.com.ar I think Fabio Moura is only a follower of the blog (not updated from September 2010). It seems no possible (for m...

Re: History of the valley and mountain folding lines

We know today that the valley and mountain folding lines were used for other authors before Samuel Randlett and Akira Yoshizawa proposed them to the origami comunity.
