Origami Heaven

A paperfolding paradise

The website of writer and paperfolding designer David Mitchell


  In 1996 a friend suggested that Gerald Jenkins, then the proprieter of Tarquin publications, might publish a book of my modular designs. I sent him a letter and a shoebox full of models. He replied enthusiastically and the result was my first book, Mathematical Origami. A second book, the Magic of Flexagons soon followed. Since then I have had the good fortune to be contracted to write and illustrate books by a number of other publishers. This is good for the bank balance ... though perhaps not as good as you might think ... but commercial publishers, quite rightly, want to publish books that will sell and so are not interested in books about the more esoteric aspects of origami design. For this reason I have also set up my own imprint, Water Trade, which allows me to pander to my own rather more specialised interests and tastes.
