The Long Box

This page is being used to record information about the origami design known as the Long Box. 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 faras I know this design first appears in 'Shukouka Kyohon : Liron Jishuu Souga Setsumei' by Kikujiro Kiuchi, Rokushiro Uehara and Hideyoshi Okayama, which was published by Shigebei Takase in Chiba in 1905, where it is titled 'Long Box'.



The same design appears in 'Origami zusetsu' (Illustrated Origami) by Sano Shozo, which was published in Tokyo in 1908, where it is presented both as a box (36) and with an open end as a Dustpan (35).
