A paperfolding paradise
The website of writer and paperfolding designer David Mitchell
page attempts to record what is known about the origin
and history of Paperclips (ways to join two or more
sheets of paper together using folding). Please contact
me if you know any of this information is incorrect or if
you have any other information that should be added.
A method of joining two sheets of paper together using a fold and slit method (and a small separate strip) appeared in 'Winter Nights Entertainments' by R M Abraham, which was first published by Constable and Constable in London in 1932.
