Origami Links

I've loved Origami for years and getting connected to the net has literally opened up a world of it for me, as you will see from the sites below. Not all of them are in English but the diagrams should be universally understandable. I hope.

If I've left anything out or if you have questions, comment or cries of displeasure please feel free to let me know. I'm in the process of removing some of the broken links and adding new ones so you can look forward to a revamped site shortly.

I haven't been to each and every site (yet). I tried to keep to non-commercial sites with diagrams so unless I've said otherwise, you'll find plenty to fold below. They aren't in any particular order and there's some pretty dd stuff in here. One of these days I might get around to alphabetizing them but for now this will have to do.

If I have missed any links or if you have a page you would like to have included PLEASE email me. I'm open to suggestions and am always looking for sites to add to the list.

If you are looking for paper or books try: Kim's Crane Origami Supplies. I am not affiliated with them, nor do I get anything out of this but they do have a wonderful selection and amazing prices.

Check out my "Minigami" page for some pictures of my work.

Now on to the links!

Joseph Wu's Origami page -- this is the most comprehensive site I know of; there are links to diagrams all over the net as well as other Origami pages. The two links below are especially noteworthy.
