A paperfolding paradise
The website of writer and paperfolding designer David Mitchell
|The Jumping Frog|
page attempts to record what is known about the origin
and history of the origami design known as the Jumping
Frog. There are several designs known by this name. Here
I mean the one that is commonly folded from a business
card. 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.
As far as I know this design first appeared in 'Folding Paper Toys' by Shari lewis and Lillian Oppenheimer which was published by Stein and Day in New York in 1963.
