There are couple of reasons for this but mainly it's because of the cost..
You see, here in Korea, Origami is not that popular among the various generations and there are still biased views over origami as 'kid-things'. So we mainly sell the books with easy designs aimed at children consumers(majority in number). Otherwise, if we make books with complex models aiming at mania class(minority in number), we may fail to sell the books and have a deficit..
If you guys are supportive and have intentions to buy the books, we can make.. :)

If the book features nice complex models, there surely is a market. The complicated thing is to get in touch with those interested. I guess a collaboration with Nicolas Terry would be good, because he has the right customers. Of course you can advertise the book here as well as on the Origami Mailing List and there are also a couple of other Origami Forums out there.
I'd definitely like to buy a book of you complex designs.

I would definitely Buy a book of complex models. A plus side would be if it was relatively easy to purchase, sometimes I find purchasing from foreign sites can be a bit hard due to language barriers and such.

I have the idea to make a book with Korean artists since my Korean Convention trip a few years ago. Then I evoked the idea with Jassu . Now, to move ahead, I need to find a korean guy who know all the koeran artists and accept to be the link between them and me during the conception of the book. greencube07, if you want to be that guy, contact me !

It seems that the models of my own were all rejected (for diagraming) by your decision, and was also rejected by the official Korean Origami Group, so I have no right to participate in the interaction.(This is the main reason why we are making the book on our own : we can't access and ask for your help when you're dealing with the official group members.) Otherwise, I would have helped the whole process..

We were thinking about asking Mr.Terry for selling the books through his site(origamishop; which is one of most easiest ways to buy origami stuff), but we couldn't since the models were all rejected even before the ask.. so we're thinking of selling the books through Amazon and OrigamiUSA(if they accept them).

I cannot remember that I rejected any book ! I try usualy to support any publication, even a confidential, buying at least a minimum quantity order to help the author. Just check origami-shop and you will see so many books in this way (last was Hsi-Min's book for example) .
Maybe I forgot but honestly, I'm very surprise about your story.
I've requested several korean models for Drawing Origami Tome 2 and choose 2 (because can't add more in one book). This is what you are talking about ?

By the way, I feel you slightly embittered so I invite you to contact me privately so that we could solve this problem and eventually see if and how I can help for your project.

I'm sorry to react that late to your suggestion but I have not seen it earlier. Thank you for your interest in my work ;)

I'm working on a book including my own designs since some years. (Too many years) I'm not that disciplined with it. One of the reasons is that I have not really an idea how to make and publish a book. Another point is the less time. However I still try to finish it! So I have set the goal to finish it end of 2017. If there are people interested in... you have to remember and urge me now and then :lol:

I also had the idea for a book about wetfolding. But I don't think I have enough content to fill it... Adding other tips like reverse engineering and so on could be a solution. But I think I can start with that idea only after finishing my first book. It's definitely on my To Do List ;)
