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 Herd of Unicorns and some other details...

Hey All! 

We've been SO busy behind the scenes here working out final details toward fulfillment and have some details and a few questions to pose.  Most of these will be addressed in the fulfillment questionnaires that I'll be submitting soon but in the mean time wanted to post some images of what we've been working toward. 

1) A herd of Unicorns... 

Here they are, the samples for the unicorns from "Grandma's Package" Read more about A Herd of Unicorns and some other details...

Whew - What a day!

Hey all,

Just a quick update to send a quick report out to everyone that today has actually been the biggest funding day yet, that is is you don't count the originals of "Creating Origami" that were swooped up in the first few hours of the campaign.   Read more about Whew - What a day!

Tee Shirts, Extra Books and bringing this "Train in for a Landing!"

As we're nearing the end of our campaign I feel myself finally coming to a place of stillness.  It's been quite a ride going along with the ups and downs and ebbs and flows of the process.  For a week now every corner I'd turn in the campaign I'd keep thinking "this is the last one..."  And then there are more, and more.  Read more about Tee Shirts, Extra Books and bringing this "Train in for a Landing!"

Wow, y'all do fast work - The NEXT stretch goal and the "Evangalists' Challenge"

As I write this we are just $100 away from our stretch goal of $12500... INCREDIBLE!  Read more about Wow, y'all do fast work - The NEXT stretch goal and the "Evangalists' Challenge"

Mooser's Train, Stamm's Dragon, Stretch Goal 4 and "Add $20 to any pledge for an extra book!"

About halfway through the project I was wishing I’d made it shorter ‘cause we’d reached our goal so fast – but now that there’s only FOUR DAYS LEFT and I’m wishing I had another week.  There is SO much going on here backstage and I’m not even sure how to relay it… without writing a whole novel.  Read more about Mooser's Train, Stamm's Dragon, Stretch Goal 4 and "Add $20 to any pledge for an extra book!"

Ankylosaurus HO!

Diagrams for "Simple Dragon" ... and a stretch goal

I've been playing with the idea of doing a stretch goal for a while so here it is.  Last Wednesday I was speaking the translator in Japan via skype and while he is basically volunteering his services out of support for the effort (and with hopes that in time some money will be made back) it seems that even a down-payment for the Japanese/French translations would be in the neighborhood of $2k-$3k just to support the expenses that will come up in the translation process.

Hey all!

What a week it's been... so much motion and movement in the campaign. Things have picked up again and it's all thanks to your continued support around tweeting, liking and pinning the word around!

The reaction to the Six Intersecting Pentagrams has been SO positive that It was my intention to post a new set of diagrams for a brand new (sort of) model that I discovered Wednesday... but after another 12 hour day here at "Lapin Headquarters" I think it's better to call it a day and return to the task fresh and first thing in the morning.
