Someone gave me a gift of a book “Traditional Japanese Origami” with 10 simple classic folds a couple of years ago. I can’t remember who it was now.
The book sat on my bookshelf waiting to be used. I looked at it frequently, a bit afraid to try one of the designs…and then I opened it yesterday and folded the first very simple design called “Japanese House.” It was surprising how with a few simple folds, the house was formed. I was delighted!
