The 1885 engraving of the Flapping
Design pages contain information about
individual paperfolding designs taken from
verifiable sources. The information provided
should be accurate but, in some cases, it may not
be all the information available.
Some designs, mostly
those which only occur once in the literature (or
in multiple books by the same author) are not
recorded separately in this section. You can,
however, locate information about them through
the relevant Topics and Indexes page.
designs have many different names in the
literature. In order to avoid confusion as to
which design is being referred to, where I have
made an Individual Design page for a design, I
have given it a standard name, usually but not
necessarily in English, which is used throughout
this site. On this page this standard name is
used as the main title of the Individual Design
page relating to that particular design.
