This page attempts to record what is known about the origin and history of the origami design known as the Star-Shaped 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 far as I know this design first appears in 'Origami (Part 1)' by Isao Honda, which was first published in Japan in 1931.
