I’m fortunate to have a good relationship with NuiNui books. Whilst not over-generous financially (who is?), they have high standards of production and their books always look beautiful, with plenty of white “breathing space” inside and beautiful images (mostly taken by me ;) My latest editions will be on sale soon, “Butterflies” and “Dinosaurs”. Initially in French and Italian, we hope they will soon be available in my native English (along with earlier book such as “British Origami”).
I’ve been invited to the APLEC didactics conference in Badalona later this month and have had to book my flight with Ryanair, due to the cost of the rival airlines. Fingers crossed the outgoing flight is not cancelled. If I’m forced to spend a few extra days there I can live with that ;)
It will be good to be there to support my Catalan friends in their struggle, but I won’t be tackling any of the riot police!

My book “Origami Poems and Pictures” went down so well, National Trust asked Nosy Crow to produce one for them. I’m delighted to say it looks superb ;)
I had a request to take a photo of an old (80s) design, “a bear climbing a tree”, inspired by the classic droodle. On the original, the paws were made from a square folded into quarters, but it’s much more efficient to use 2 half-squares ;)
