They have authored over 50 origami books and kits, and have produced over a dozen video DVD lessons for the paper folding enthusiast, and hand papermaking for the origami artist.

LaFosse has taught origami in schools since 1972 and continues to work with teachers, artists, designers and performers who incorporate origami into their profession. He has lectured and demonstrated origami around the world and has produced exhibits for the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum, the Peabody-Essex Museum, the Morikami Museum and Japanese Gardens, the Carrousel du Louvre, Paris, and Matsuya Ginza, Tokyo.
