In Volume 3, Kunihiko Kasahara refers to the historical and traditional origami. He refers to the “Kan no mado”, the historical publication of 1845, which in addition to the famous human figures also monkeys, crabs, dragonfly, snail u.v.m. has published.
From the “Sembazuru Orikata” (1797) Kasahara presents numerous crane compositions. These combinations, all made from a single piece of paper with multiple cuts, are still very popular today, although folding requires skill and patience.
Also Froebel may not be missing at Kasahara, when it comes to the history of origami. In a short section he shows the variety of Fröbel’s folds.
