'Fun with Paperfolding' by William D Murray and Francis J Rigney was first published by the Fleming H Revell Company, New York in 1928. It contains diagrams for the Pagoda, a design made by stacking successively smaller, but otherwise identical, paperfolds on top of each other. The same book also contains diagrams for a Dog made by combining three 'shirtwaists', more commonly known as the jacket from the Suit of Clothes.
