Overall Impression

The Origami Tanteidan magazine is the high-quality bi-monthly publication of the Japanese Origami Academic Society (JOAS). It usually contains many articles, and diagrams for geometric shapes, an intermediate design, a complex design and a crease-pattern challenge.

Also see listing of all other Origami Tanteidan magazines in my collection.

There are 6 Origami Designs in Origami Tanteidan Magazine 72:
