Booklet 3 of 'Trabajos Manuales Salvatella - Plegado de figuras de papel', which was published by Editorial Miguel A Salvatera in Barcelona around 1929, contains a design for 'La Estrella' - a four-pointed star developed from a stretched bird base.



A simple cut four-pointed star appears as 'Einfacher Zierstern / Doppelstern' in 'Wir Falten' by Joachim Schönherr and Gerta Schumann, which was published by Rudolf Arnold Verlag in Leipzig in 1961.
