A paperfolding paradise
The website of writer and paperfolding designer David Mitchell
|Deliciae physico mathematicae Volume 3 by Georg Phillip Harsdorffer, 1653|
3 of 'Deliciae physico mathematicae' was a follow up to
Daniel Schwenter's 1636 book written by Georg Phillip
Harsdorffer, and published in 1653. I cannot read German
and so could possibly have missed relevant passages which
are not accompanied by illustrations.
A full copy of the work is available at https://books.google.co.uk/books?id=tgJaAAAAcAAJ&printsec=frontcover&source=gbs_ge_summary_r&cad=0#v=onepage&q&f=false
Pages 189 to 190 contain information about the folding of tablecloths.
Page 252 contains a cut and fold net for a rhombicuboctahedron (although the net is incorrect as it is ten segments, rather than just eight, in height).
Pages 256 and 257 show how to make a multiple image picture from triangular wooden slats.
