I'd like to ask you a question:
would you call this the First
Iteration the way the book did?

Aren't there really some iterations before this one? Wouldn't the first paper-fold really be the first iteration?

I'd like to see what they look like.

Let's take a look at the real first, second, and third iterations below.
