Origins of Origami

Over time origami has reached more countries which have developed their own styles and practices with the art form, some key points in the history of origami are:
- First origami book published in 1797, titled Senbazuru Orikata.
- The first documented evidence of it entering Europe was a picture of a small, folded paper boat in a French Book from 1498.
