The first time that I saw printed directions for this book stucture was in a book, which I did not buy, in a Teachers Store somewhere in Brooklyn, about thirty years ago. I tried to memorize the instructions (I failed). It was a couple of years before I found it again.
Over the years I have come across many, many sets of instructions for this structure. Maybe one day someone will collect as many versions as they can find and post them all in one place. But, for now, here’s my most current version (This, the third or forth attempt at getting it right.) If you want to print it out, this link : Making an 8-page Origami Pamphlet will be a better quality than the above image. For black and white printing, here is the B&W handout for the Origami Pamphlet.
And, just for fun, here are a few more links to directions posted by other people:
- English teacher, Andrew Leggett’s, simple-origami-book
- Artist and Bookbinder, Rhonda Miller’s, secret-fold-notebook
- Artist and Instructor, Susan Kapuscinski Gaylord’s. hot dog booklet
Addendum March 5, 2014 : I’ve just created a Pinterest board with loads of different versions of instructions of this same structure. It’s a fun look at all the variations. http://www.pinterest.com/bookzoompa/a-collection-of-how-to-make-an-orgami-pamphlet-eig/
Please send me links to any other tutorials like this that you may find!

This book is also known as the “instant book” from “How to Make a Book” by Esther K Smith. She shows it in a taller form as well.
Directions for this book form is so well covered by so many artists that I sometimes think it would be a great idea to have a show that just featured set of directions have been created by different people. One of these days I might put together a show of this myself! I will keep a look out for Esther’s directions: she makes great tutorials.
