I just got an email about the Origami Christmas book. What a neat concept! This is the seventh time that it’s been in production and it is a book from creators to creators. All the material is new as creators cannot submit any previously published instructions.
If you’re interested in participating, keep reading below on instructions from Anna (the organizer of this great initiative).
How it works:
Everyone who wants to participate sends Anna (at least) one previously unpublished folding instruction. Afterwards Anna assembles them all into a pdf-file with a table of contents and send it back to all participants. In the end everyone of them gets a nice compilation of diagrams that aren’t available elsewhere.
Everyone who wants to take part can send his/her instructions to Origamibook AT gmail DOT com (Replace “AT” with “@” and “DOT” with “.”)
The last date to send your instructions is December 14. The book will be sent out on December 24 (hence the name Christmas Origamibook).
