Overall Impression

The BOS magazine (sometimes also called "BOM") is the bi-monthly publication of the British Origami Society, keeping British and international folders informed on origami news since 1968. It has grown from a few xeroxed pages to a full-fledged magazine, full of interesting articles and diagrams.

Also see listing of all other BOS magazines in my collection.
