  These Source Pages contain information relating to books, articles in newspapers and magazines, illustrations, exhibitions, and historical survivals, that are the raw material of paperfolding history. If you know of any other significant sources of information that I have overlooked please let me know.

In many cases these pages provide a link to a full online version of the document the information is drawn from.

Sources which only give information about one particular design may not be listed on this page, although they will be referenced in the relevant Topic and Individual Design pages.

Where a source is marked 'incomplete information' it means I do not yet have access to a full print or electronic copy. I maintain a page which lists these missing sources. If you have a copy of any of these, and are willing to share the information it contains with me, I will be extremely grateful.

Where a source is marked 'not yet fully analysed' it means I have access to a full print or electronic copy but have not yet found time to analyse the information it contains.

Where a source is marked 'not yet fully integrated' it means the page has been created but information has not yet been fully carried across to the relevant Index and Individual Design pages.

I also maintain a list of other sources I have consulted / searched, which will hopefully help to reduce the duplication of effort among paperfolding history researchers.
