Overall Impression

The Paper is the official publication of Origami USA, and has gone through several transformations since its beginning in 1980, as "The Friends of the Origami Center of America" became "Origami USA". The magazine focuses on the origami community and events in the US and the world, as well as including a few diagrammed designs.
