Origami Bonsai Update - June 1, 2010
Origami Bonsai 
(Tuttle Publishing, ISBN 0804841039 ) the first book in the Origami Bonsai series was released onApril 10, 2010. While I do not have access to sales data directly, I am able to garner some information from Amazonand Barnes and Noble statistics. It seems the book is experiencing growth in what could best be described as waves.Sales increase, I believe, as a group of people discover the book, and then slow down as they digest it. The wavethat follows is larger than its predecessor, which suggests positive growth. For a time the book was in the number 9position for top sellers in the
 flower arranging
category.At the same time, sales of the other books in the series (on DVD and sold directly by me) have grown tremendously.I was recently contacted by a fellow in Phoenix, Arizona, USA, to tell me that making branches was his only option. Ihad not considered that there would be people who did not have access to branches, which are needed in the firstbook.
In This Issue:
Development of Origami Bonsai continues at a rapid pace. I recently obtained a provisional patent on the foldingpattern used by the
basic flower form
which is presented in the first book. While reviewing the pattern for thepatent application I realized it was not dependent upon a square. In fact, the same folding pattern can beapplied to a two-dimensional shape with any number of corners. Each cornerrepresents a petal, therefore the folding pattern is capable of producing flowerswith an unlimited number petals.I immediately set out to design a five petal flower. Five petals areimportant, mostly because they're far more common in nature thanfour petals. Five is also a Fibonacci number (Italian mathematician whodiscovered a series of numbers commonly found in nature), which makesthe new flower even more exciting.After successfully folding some five-petal flowers I wondered who elsemight be working "beyond the square," and discovered that many arepushing the origami envelope. Please read on.Sincerely,Benjamin John Coleman
The first five petal flower based on the basic flower  form presented in "Origami Bonsai," by Benjamin John Coleman and from Tuttle Publishing.
