RIP David Lister, the world’s leading expert on the history and culture of origami

Read his Guardian obituary and, like me, you’ll think “what a guy”.

I heart origami money.

“Driver turns up to police station to pay traffic ticket with 137 origami dollar bill PIGS . . . and cops make him unfold every one” via The Daily Mail.

Oooh, a little Scottish guerrilla origami.

“The mystery of who has been delivering hand-crafted artworks to the city’s cultural hotspots has deepened after an intricate model of a nesting dragon was found in the Scottish Storytelling Centre,” says the Scotsman. More info about the origami, which is made using pages from an Ian Rankin novel, here.

Ruth Singer turns to origami.

One of my favourite textile artists, Ruth Singer, has had a little dabble with origami. This piece was created from proof pages of her best-known book, Sew It Up. I like.

More info about the piece here. And more details of her new workshop dates here.

I wish I could have gone to this.

The origami workshop at the London Knowledge Lab looked like a cracking event. Luckily, the New Scientist was there to report back.

This weekend I would mostly like to: make origami versions of MENTAL hats.

1. Create your own Princess Beatrice hat from the Royal Wedding over at Channel 4.

2. Make your very own Lady Gaga telephone hat with LeilaniJoy on YouTube – this one is amazing.

Erm, 3am Girls, don’t be dissing paper folding.

“A couple’s first year of marriage is represented by paper, after all, but normally comes in the form of origami lovehearts or some such tat.”

Don’t be putting origami in the same league as Jordan ladies.
