The Public Paperfolding History Project


This project aims to collect information from verifiable historical sources from which a more reliable narrative of the development of paperfolding can be shaped, and to make it publicly available for everyone to study and enjoy.

It is David Mitchell’s intention to record everything he can discover about paperfolding history up to and including 1970 and some later events such as the history of modular origami design.
