A paperfolding paradise
The website of writer and paperfolding designer David Mitchell
|The Fold and Cut Paper Honeycomb|
page attempts to record what is known about the origin
and history of the fold and cut design known as the
Honeycomb. 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.
This design appears in 'The Girl's Own Book' by Lydia Marie Child, which was published by Clark Austin and Co in New York in 1833. It contains the interesting information that 'In England, where they burn coal more than they do here, they fasten sheets of paper together and cut them in this way, to throw over the front of stoves during the summer season.'
