"I write descriptions of natural forms on the walls, scratching them on the tile surface with a diamond."
–Donald Barthelme, "Game"



Origami compound of the cube and octahedron with instructions.

This is slightly easier with a wider sheet of paper, and these instructions are easily adaptable.  The completed unit is actually an old one made from letter-sized paper.

(Sorry about the irregularly sized numbers.  I bet that’s really going to annoy some people — I can only hold that reaction at bay myself with a monumental force of will.  What can I say, I forgot to make sure all the numbers had been unselected in Paint.NET before changing font size for the last panel and only noticed it after I’d saved and quit.  Live and learn.)
