The art of folding paper has been a part of Japanese culture for thousands of years. Origami traditionally has been used for religious and ceremonious purposes. Today, many people still enjoy origami, and intricate patterns and designs have been developed.
Directions for folding origami can sometimes be difficult to understand and follow. To resolve this, these origami sheets are typographically treated, resulting in step by step instructions that appear as they are folded. In the end, a koi fish is constructed, a symbol of prosperity and good luck in Japan.
