Make your Orisons

ORISON is the name of the magazine produced by the Origami SociĆ«teit Nederland who have been publishing this excellent booklet for a long time (since 1983!) and as origami mags go, it’s one of the best for a regular supply if new, not too complex designs.

They favour diagrams over text based content and it must be hard to keep finding this many models, month after month. However my old friend Peter Blondel seems to succeed every issue.

The latest came through today and features my “bat” amongst others. They have recently decided to use creators diagrams as is rather than redrawing them. I’m all in favour of seeing the original diagrams, even if they are not perfect. It’s all part of the design in my eyes.

I’ve yet to visit the Netherlands, but must put it higher up my wish list.
