Poissons d’ origami

I had a lovely message (and photo) from Viviane Berty, one of the contributors to my fishy book.

Hello Nick,

This message is to say thank you again for having included me in the project “Poissons en origami”. I have read this book and folded many models with pleasure, and seen some videos, so I can say it is a good book and publication ! Usually books by Nick Robinson can be recommended, but this one is in French version and includes decorated papers, which is much more nice.

Of course, decorated papers are not good for every models, but it is easy to find simple papers. 

Not a blame but a regret : about Sebastien Limet’s arête de poisson, it was not possible to indicate how to make the decreasing effect… too bad ! I talked with him about this, he is OK, and grateful to have been included in this project like I am.

So : tout va très bien et merci !



A brilliant photo!  I did speak about this to Sebastien before simplifying his excellent design. The folding technique would have made a difficult model almost impossible for most people and the publishers insisted there was nothing too complex within the book and I really wanted to include what is a wonderful concept.
