Origami Heaven

A paperfolding paradise

The website of writer and paperfolding designer David Mitchell


Mathematical Origami - Geometrical shapes by paper folding

This was my first book, originally published in 1997 by Gerald Jenkins of Tarquin publications after I sent him a shoebox of paper models. It is aimed at mathematics teachers and recreational mathematicians. It is still in print and still selling well.

All designs are my own except Cube by Paul Jackson, Icosahedron by Tomoko Fuse, Skeletal Octahedron by Robert Neale, Skeletal Cube by David Brill and Rhombic Dodecahedron by Nick Robinson.
