|The Public Paperfolding History Project
|The Origamian, Volume 10, Issue 1: 1970|
were only two issues in this volume as the last three
were combined into one. Issues 2, 3 and 4 were not
published until well into 1971, possibly as late as
August. This brings the publication outside the main
period of this project and this issue therefore has a separate page of its own. This volume was edited by
Vol 10: Issue 1 - Spring 1970
(not published until 'considerably after' September 1970 - as stated in Herman Shall's obituary)
Main Matters of Interest:
A profile of Mark Medvene, written by Alice Gray.
A letter from the Netherlands from Amarins Hopman de Jong, who learned her origami from Honda's books.
A letter about a Unamuno design, 'Table with brasero in the middle'.
(There are two difficulties with this letter. The first lies in identifying 'Fernanda de Unamuno, daughter of the philosopher'. Miguel de Unamuno did not have a daughter called Fernanda. He did, though, have a son called Fernando. It is, perhaps, possible that somehow the names have become confused. The second lies in identifying the design. No design of Miguel de Unamuno's that could be called 'Table with brasero in the middle' (brasero meaning brazier) is known. Information from Juan Gimeno.)
