Records & Curiosities

by John Smith

I have always enjoyed reading about the biggest and smallest of almost anything. Naturally, I enjoy the Guinness Book of Records (or superlatives). At odd times I have been collecting origami records and curiosities and thanks to the help of Joseph Wu these have been published on the Internet. I have now updated this collection and added illustrations where possible and transferred it to my own web site. I would welcome corrections, updates or new entries. My thanks are due to Ralf Laue of Leipzig and other friends for some fascinating material.Naturally I have not been able to verify what is published here but where possible I have given the source of the report. I would be grateful for any corrections and I would particularly welcome any new contributions.
