Satoshi Kamiya's New Book

Post by Kijjakarn »

Great news here: Origami House is now editing its new book by Satoshi Kamiya, Works of Satoshi KAMIYA 2 2002-2009!

I have suspected since 2009, when Kamiya himself posted an edited image of his new book on the April's Fool Day, that he will someday publish a book with his Phoenix in it.

Here's the picture of it:

They are now editing it, so it should take around 1 more year I guess...
Anyway super awesome news.

You forgot the Origami House time conversion chart. 1 OH year is at least 2.5 normal years. :lol:

Anyway, can't wait for the book, no matter how long it takes.

Since it has been in production since possibly 2009 and Kamiya is experienced with origami house publishing, I'd say within a year might be likely. Can't wait to see the contents :D .

Kamiya's first book was released in '05 if memory serves, and it only had models as recent as 2003. By that same logic, this book would have been scheduled for last year, which means another year and a half at least.

man, there are so many great models between those years...
We know its gonna have the Phoenix 3.5 diagrammed.
I really hope he published some new content in this book, i'd love to see the caribu 2.2, wasp 2.5, eurypterus, styracosaurus 2.0, praying mantis, mixopterus, LSD, horse, japanese tree frog, and otolonicus diagrammed.

I'd love to see those Ryujin diagrams that got leaked a few months ago. At least that would fit the time frame of the book, I think. (V2.1 was 2002 and v3.5 was 2005, right?)

This is my bet, based on what he has published since his last book and what I suspect could be in it that hasn't been diagrammed.

Likely to unlikely:

Phoenix (on cover)
Cyclomatus Metalifer (published)
Sleipnir (published)
Sea Turtle (published)
Cerberus (published)
Lion (published)
Little Bird (published)
Angelfish (published)
Lyrebird (published)
Locust (published)
Giraffe (published)
Hermit Crab (maybe, published)
Dragonfly (maybe, published)
Asiatic Elephant (maybe, published)
Spinosaurus (maybe, published)
Butterfly (maybe)
Tree Frog (maybe)
Bear (maybe)
Leafy Sea Dragon (maybe)
Raccoon Dog (maybe)
Wasp (maybe)
Ryu-Zin (not likely)

Even if diagrams were in the works for the Ryu-zin, it seems like it would be in a special edition all its own, so I made it least likely. I'd say the wasp is pretty likely despite not being previously published, simply because it is one of his more famous works, like the Sea Turtle, Ryu-zin, Phoenix, and Ancient Dragon. I included his Bear which isn't even on his website, because nice bear models are far and few between :P .

Ryujin is very unlikely to be in the book. In fact, I think it will not be at all. Kamiya (or whoever designs the cover) would have used a picture of Ryujin instead of Phoenix for the front cover.

I hope it contains more unpublished diagrams than just the Phoenix. I think that would be a healthy habit for Origami House to get into. I really just couldn't see buying Komatsu's book with the international costs really for just the Lion, since the other models were already out there. If you're a regular customer of the Tanteidan Convention books or magazines, then chances are you'd already have what will be in this book, so hopefully Satoshi's been working hard to surprise us this time around.
