  1 Eric Joisel site

Eric Joisel was a friend of mine who I met at one of the BOS conventions, where he was a guest. We became fiends, but then he fell victim to the evil weed, developing lung cancer, which eventually killed him. I don't often tell people what to do or what not to do, but in this case I will make an exception. DON'T SMOKE !, or as Eric would put it, FUMEZ PAS !. It's expensive, antisocial and not clever, and it can be very debilitating. It brought Eric to a premature end, and also killed my Dad.

Anyway, rant over. If you would like to see the grave of Eric Joisel and his family, look here .

  2 Robert Lang site

Bob Lang is an engineer who has always been fascinated by Origami, and has applied his engineering and mathamathical know-how to the form. There is a brief overview on his website here.

He has written a couple of computer programs.

The first one allows you to find any point on a square with just a few folds.

The second one, found here , much more ambitiously lets you draw your intended design as a simple stick model, which it will then convert into a crease pattern to get the right number of points in the right places to make the model in paper. It unfortunately turns out that the crease partern so derived is very difficult to fold !

He has also written a book called 'Origami Design Secrets', currently in it's second edition, and widely regarded as the best engineering treatment of origami, available here.
