The original version of JC Nolan’s seminal book, ”Creating Origami", was written and released in 1995 to a small audience of attendees at the annual OUSA (Origami USA) convention in New York City. It had been created over the course of a 3 year period, where after being discouraged by the lack of existing information on the design process for people who wanted to do their own models, Nolan decided if a book on the subject hadn’t been done before, he’d do it himself. After a successful campaign on to raise funds to release ”Creating Origami” to a new generation of folders the book is once more available. Click here for more information...

A Couple of Holiday Toots!

A couple of announcements for your post-turkey pre-holidaze preparations... The first is a very late announcement that "Tom Stamm's Origami Dragons" is finally available in book form. It contains Tom's original "Sea Serpent Dragon" model which was released in booklet form from OUSA way back in the day... but also contains several other of his dragons including his charming "Multi-Piece Sea Serpent" and a few others which have never been diagrammed before.

Mooser’s Train book!

Mooser's Train Cover

Inspired by the work I've been doing with OUSA with Pubs/Archival, I decided to create a special "extended" version of the Mooser's diagrams I did earlier this year for the 2013 Annual and put them in paperback form for the holiday season. I thought that they might be a fun gift this year to inspire that "special kid" in your life (even your inner kid ;-) Read more about Mooser’s Train book!

AWESOME Origami!

Hey All,

Just wanted to give you a heads up that my other book Awesome Origami VI and II is (are?) finally available as well. The book is quite cool in that every model in it has been designed by kids… or at least kids under the age of 18. Back in the “day” when I created it I was inspired by the idea of creating passion in young folders to design new models and for that reason pulled the designs from contributors to OUSA’s Origami By Children (OBC) program as well as students I’d taught as well.
