Background

Origami, the art of paper folding, is a pastime that has existed in Japan since at least the Heian period (794 – 1185 AD) and is enjoyed by people all over the world to this day. True origami only contains folds, though there are some who use glues and other modelling sprays to create smoother and more complicated designs. For a great range of origami books and paper for practitioners of all levels, take a look at Japan Centre's Origami section.
