Staircase Diagram?

Postby Nanmaniac » August 23rd, 2006, 8:10 pm

Hi there,
I go on building some origami houses, and I wonder if there is any kind of origami staircase (with steps). I do not care if it is modular.
I've been looking it up, and I found one staircase, but without diagram or any clue about it.
Thanks in advance

You should try to get the book Dolls House with Origami by Yoshihide Momotani.

It has stairways, walls, windows,... everything you need to build a complete house, including furniture :)
So long and keep folding ^_^

1 Very lightly fold paper in half horizontally pinching the middle at each end.

2. Fold left and right edges into the centre using the pinches as a guide

3. Alternately mountain and valley fold the paper into 16ths from top to bottom.

4. If you want to add a little depth to each step twist fold the inside paper to the side for each step.

Ta Da... well I did not say it would be an impressive staircase, and believe me its a lot better than my moving walkway model.

(sorry hope somone can help)

Daydreamer, it looks like it is a wonderful book... but where can you get it? No amazon...NO library!
Thanks anyway

No more images at all.
By the way, the book is in Japanese... and I'm not really fluent with it. Any other suggestion?

There where no images (except the bookcover), just the table of contents and a description. Like in most Origami books, you don´t need to speak the language the book is written in to understand the diagrams. The models in this books are cute and well worth buying the book.

Your question has already been answered in this topic, read carefully through the text you´ve quoted the last time (the original text, not the quote).
Another source would be for example the german viereck-verlag, or amazon.jp, ...
