The booth across from us at BEA belonged to Kodansha America (which OUP distributes.) On Friday afternoon Ayako Brodek, author of Origami Jewelry, gave a demonstration of her origami jewelry-making techniques. Barely looking at her hands, Brodek swiftly folded crane after crane. I think it is a bit like knitting after a while, the motion becomes meditative and relaxing. Check out the pictures below to see Brodek at work.
