This page attempts to record what is known about the origin and history of Paperclips (ways to join two or more sheets of paper together using folding). Please contact me if you know any of this information is incorrect or if you have any other information that should be added. Thank you.


A method of joining two sheets of paper together using a fold and slit method (and a small separate strip) appeared in 'Winter Nights Entertainments' by R M Abraham, which was first published by Constable and Constable in London in 1932.
