Origami Background

Postby Helen » April 12th, 2004, 7:32 pm

Hi, I?m new here :)

Since I tried to fold some easy (??) models lately, I?m interested in the background of paper folding. Does anybody knows about its history, origin(s), or are there any legends, beliefs or customs connected to paper folding? I?d be glad if you could tell me anything related to it?

Yours,
Helen

vielleicht solltest Du Dich bei der deutschen Origami Mailingliste anmelden, und sowas dort mal nachfragen. Ich weiß auswendig garnicht, wo Du dich da anmelden mußt, aber ich werd mal nachschlagen. Kuck Dich parallel dazu aber auch mal im Netz um.

Ach ja, willkommen auf diesem Board :)
