El Plegado y Cartonaje en la Escuela Primaria by Antonio M Luchia and Corina Luciani de Luchia, 1940
 
'El Plegado y Cartonaje en la Escuela Primaria' by Antonio M Luchia and Corina Luciani de Luchia was published by Editorial Kapelusz in Buenos Aires in 1940.

Many of the designs in this book make use of cuts to simplify the folding method.

A full copy of the book can be found online at www.bnm.me.gov.ar/giga1/libros/00089681/00089681.pdf

I have not included all the material in the book on this page. I have omitted some of the very simple folds with which the book begins, some examples of cardboard modelling / cartonaje and some of the mathematical paperfolds with which the book ends.
