A paperfolding paradise
The website of writer and paperfolding designer David Mitchell
|The Double Boat with Sail|
page attempts to record what is known about the origin
and history of the Double Boat with Sail. Please contact
me if you know any of this information is incorrect or if
you have any other information that should be added.
As far as I know this design first appears as the 'Bateau a Voile' in 'L'Annee Preparatoire de Travail Manuel' by M P Martin, which was published by Armand Collin & Cie in Paris in 1893. It is made from a blintzed windmill base.
