Christmas Origami Book 2010

Postby origami_8 » October 27th, 2010, 6:54 pm

Dear all,

For the fifths 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unpublished instructions only.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unpublished folding instruction.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 15.

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

Yours Anna

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

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:
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Yes, by sending more than one unpublished diagram, you can "buy"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.

* How many participants contributed in previous years?
2009:
59 participants sent in a total of 90 models (12 Crease Patterns, 3 photo Instructions, 1 alternative model).
The book was 246 pages long and 25,2MB in size.
2008:
56 authors sent in a total of 90 models (17 Crease Patterns, 6 photo
instructions, 5 text instructions).
The book was 287 pages long and 28,4 MB in size.
2007:
48 participants sent in a total of 70 instructions (16 Crease
Patterns, 4 photo instructions).
The book was 13 MB in size and 176 pages long.
2006:
32 Authors have sent in a total of 49 Models (5 Crease Patterns).
The book was 147 pages long and 24 MB in size.

Yes, I'm sorry I'm a bit late this year, but I hope that those who waited for so long took the time to draw diagrams...

I also have novel diagrams for the collection which I will be happy to contribute. I would suggest some sort of link for the non-cognoscenti so diagrams can be efficaciously contributed.

Do you think i should diagram my crow? I don't think diagrams would be terribly difficult to make. Picture related, it's my crow.

EDIT:: I know that there are some small little tidbits here and there that need cleaning up, i'll fix those in the diagrams. (if I end up making them)

I have a couple of questions: Do the diagrams have to be plain black and white or can we send diagrams with coloured (eg. Blue and red) drawings?

Also, if a diagram of myne were already released to the public (eg. My crab or walrus) would it be accepted if i were to re-draw those diagrams of better quality?

Thanks :wink:

Since it is an e-book coloured diagrams and photos are no problem at all. The only effect colour has is that the filesize will be a little bigger but that doesn't matter.

I'm sorry but I have no idea what you mean. Could you please try to explain a bit more in detail what you would like me to do?

Sorry that I forgot to answer your second question. The diagrams for the book should be new, so please no previously published redrawn diagrams. You sure have enough models to send something new ;) They do not need to be computer drawn, you can also send hand drawn diagrams if you like.

My bad. I was looking for a "send" button, and didn't see the address in our original post. Diagram sent.
