The Japanese Rabbit
This page attempts to record what is known about the origami design which I call the Japanese Rabbit. Please contact me if you know any of this information is incorrect or if you have any other information that should be added. Thank you.



An illustration of this design appears in 'Origami Moyo, Book Two', by Kawarazaki Kodo, which was published in Japan in 1935.



A slightly different version of the design appears, as 'Bunny', in 'The Art of Origami' by Samuel Randlett, which was published by E P Dutton in New York in 1961.



The design also appears, as 'Rabbit', in 'Your Book of Paperfolding' by Vanessa and Eric de Maré, which was published by Faber and Faber in London in 1968, where it was is to be a traditional Japanese design.
