TRUTH !!
In 1902, a Spanish man named Miguel de Unamuno wrote the book as a humorous essay about the love of paper folding.
Unamuno was a philosopher, author, and educator who took up paper folding as a hobby.
Though it is mostly associated with the Japanese art of Origami, paper folding has become an art in many other countries, including Germany, South America and Spain.
