For the seventh time there will be an Origami Christmas book this year.
This will be a book from creators to creators containing previously unpublished instructions only.
That's how it works:
Everyone who wants to participate sends me (at least) one previously unpublished folding instruction. Afterwards I assemble 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.
I'll send the book out on December 24 (hence the name Christmas Origamibook).
Hopefully many people will contribute to this project so that we´ll get a nice book together
PS: I'm glad for everyone to spread the word to other people, be it on Forums, Mailing lists or whatever else.
Some questions (and their answers) that have been asked before:
* Do I need to send computer drawn diagrams?
No, hand drawn diagrams or other clear instructions (photo or text) count as well, but I need them electronically.
* Can I send more than one diagram?
Yes of course, as many as you want.
* Can I have a copy of the book without sending something in?
No, this project is thought as an exchange of folding instructions and not to earn money with it. If you don't have an own model to diagram maybe you can draw diagrams for someone else's model, so that you two can participate as one person. For help in finding someone see here:viewtopic.php?t=1810
* Have the models to be Christmas related?
No they don't. Christmas is just the date you will receive the book.
* Can I send Crease Patterns and Text Instructions as well?
Yes, but make sure to also send a picture of the finished model.
Diagrams are preferred.
* Is it possible to obtain the books of the previous years?
Yes, by sending more than one unpublished diagram, you can "buy" previous editions (one book per additional diagram).
If you send more than one diagram and want to obtain back issues please tell which one(s) you want.
