  These Source Pages contain information relating to books, articles in newspapers and magazines, illustrations, exhibitions, and historical survivals, that are the raw material of paperfolding history. If you know of any other significant sources of information that I have overlooked please let me know.

In many cases these pages provide a link to a full online version of the document the information is drawn from.

Sources which only give information about one particular design may not be listed on this page, although they will be referenced in the relevant Topic and Individual Design pages.

Where a source is listed but not yet linked to a page it means I have information on what the source contains but have not yet found time to add the information here.

Where a source is listed but marked 'incomplete information' it means I have not yet been able to obtain a full print copy or find a full electronic copy of the source online. I maintain a List of books / booklets / articles a full copy of which has not yet been located. If you have a copy of any of these and are willing to share the information it contains with me I will be extremely grateful.

Where a source is listed but marked 'not yet analysed' it means the linked page will contain the source material but no analysis of what the source material contains.

Where a source is listed but marked 'not yet fully integrated' it means the source has been analysed but information has not yet been carried across to the relevant Index and Individual Design pages.

I also maintain a list of those Other Sources I have Consulted / Searched, which will hopefully help to reduce the duplication of effort among paperfolding history researchers.
