Origami made with Island themes

By Ann M. Sato
Special to The Advertiser

"There is no try. There is only do," Yoda said in "Star Wars."

In the case of Jodi Fukumoto’s delightful new how-to book, "The Guide to Hawaiian Style Origami" (Island Heritage, hardback, $9.99), there is no read. There is only do.

This bright-hued volume, sensibly spiral bound (so it stays open while you follow the step-by-step folding diagrams), is almost as good as having Fukumoto, a well-known teacher of the art of Japanese paper folding, right in front of you.

She offers a basic introduction to origami, 14 Island-theme projects (from plumeria to double-hulled canoes) and wraps up with a brief discussion of her trademark use of different papers to create artistic effects.

If you’re among those who can’t resist a new craft, you’ll want this book.

Correction: "The Guide to Hawaiian Style Origami" by Jodi Fukumoto was published by Island Heritage. Because of a reporter’s error, the publisher’s name given on Page E1 of Sunday’s Island Life section was incorrect.
