Cover

It's a Winter Wonderland. That is the theme for the 2004 origami holiday tree at the American Museum of Natural History. It was designed and decorated by Delrosa Marshall (NY) and Sok Song (NY) using over a thousand models including rookeries of penguins, herds of ibex, pods of orcas, parliaments of owls and over 300 snowflakes. Many OrigamiUSA member folded models for the tree and a full ist of those volunteers will appear in the next issue of the PAPER. Thank you to all who helped create this wonderful origami display.
