Gefaltete Schönheit – the most important book ever?

Postby Nick » Tue Dec 06, 2011 6:19 pm

Please read my blog on Joan's superb book "Gefaltete Schönheit" - I hope you will buy it (how do we buy it Joan?) We are trying to find funds to have it translated into English.

I had the university library order a copy soon after your blog post, and I have to say this is a really fascinating book even though I don't know German yet-- thanks for the tip Nick! Hopefully I'll pick up a little German while I work through it...

I ordered a copy back when it was posted on the origami-mailing-list and I never regretted it.
Indeed this book contains really important information and needs to be translated, at least into English.

We're looking at a few translation options - I wonder if we could set up some kind of advance ordering so that Joan could find the funds to have it reprinted?
