Overall Impression

BOS booklet 30 explores David Petty's Page Marker Base - made from a 1X4 rectangle, that can be used to create many human figures and where a slight variation in the folding creates a whole new character. There are 2 variations of this base included, as well as a few other forms of page-markers. I enjoyed playing with the ideas in the booklet and to come up with my own variations.

There are 45 Origami Designs in Paper People and Other Pointers:
