Christmas Origami Book 2007

Postby origami_8 » October 5th, 2007, 10:19 pm

Dear all,

Once again Christmas time is coming nearer and like last year I want to prepare a book of diagrams that will be sent to all participants.
It's a book from creators to creators containing previously unpublished instructions only.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Everyone who wants to participate sends me (at least) one previously unpublished folding instruction.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 15.

Hopefully many people will contribute to this project so that we´ll get a nice book together :)

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

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.

* Can I send more than one diagram?
Yes of course, as much 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: http://snkhan.co.uk/forum/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.

* How many participants contributed last year?
32 Authors have sent in a total of 49 Models, five of them as Crease Patterns. The finished book contained 149 pages and was 24MB in size.

That is so cool! I drew my first diagrams ever (for a mortarboard from a dollar bill) a month or two ago. I have photos on flickr, but now I have access to a scanner so I should be able to get a cleaner version up on the web. Anyway, here are the diagrams for anyone who would like to check it out:

The completed model:

Contact me if you need help with the diagrams-it is my first attempt at diagramming, so things are probably a little unclear.

Good job on that mortarboard Jonnycakes. Try folding it from a square. Use the bottom half of the square exactly as this model. Then pleat the top half of the square to form the ribbon thing that hangs down (if you know what I mean). See if that works?

Good work on the diagrams.

I'm very sorry, but for the book you would have to send me unpublished diagrams in private to the above mentioned adress.
Please read the first post of this topic once again carefully to find out why.

Came up with a Chikorita (a Pokemon) today in class. I want to make photo diagrams of it for this year's book :D

It seems to me that this years book will become fantastic.
The diagrams I got so far are of very good quality and I hope that there will be soon a lot more of these.

Hmmm, can I also send diagrams for my Simple Mew? It involves gluing and drawing, but is a very good model to teach young kids (preferably those who like Pokemon).

Glueing and drawing? Only if it is really necessary, but well you can send the diagrams.

There are only 14 days left to get your submissions in, so if you haven't drawn diagrams yet now is the right time.

Oh, I almost forgot about this! Luckily for me, I have my cat diagrams. The only person whos seen them is alisher_navoi (who I think said that he was interested in this). I might try diagramming something else, too.

I've been trying to email my Chikorita diagrams, but it won't work for some reason :( Can I upload it on Rapidshare and give you the link through PM, Anna?
