newwsBOS Publications

The BOS Publications team is now working actively to continue the publication of booklets containing diagrams for models, and also texts on the history, theory, and practice of origami, and related subjects.

Coming soon, we have a Tribute to David Lister (more details here) and a new collection from Giles Towning, called "Origami Construction IV". As a teaser for this booklet, you can download templates to make a "Blue Globe" and an "Earth Globe".

You are encouraged to submit any manuscripts for consideration for publication by the team. If your work is accepted, we will help you present your work so it fits the BOS house style, and work with you to ensure your work is presented in the most attractive and saleable form. If you want, we’ll advise you on drawing techniques and styles.

We regret that we are unable to provide any royalties or fees to booklet authors, but you will receive free copies.

Here is a list of currently available booklets is in our supplies shop.

We also produce bi-annual Model Collections to accompany our conventions.
