Notable didactic researchers

David Lister [1930-2013] Without doubt, the most knowledgeable paper-folding historian in England. His work is the most important source we have of contemporary paper-folding knowledge and we are only starting to look into his amazing archive. Elsje van der Ploeg [1951-2014] Elsje did fantastic work creating, documenting and teaching envelopes and letterfolds through elfa, elfa-e and many origami publications. She went beyond the call and documented via diagrams folds by other artists and she generously shared them with all of us.
