Advance Praise for Marvelous Modular Origami "A must-have for any modular origami polyhedra enthusiast." -Rona Gurkewitz, co-author of Multimodular Origami Polyhedra "The models are paper folding in its purest form. They range from simple Sonobe to floral and geometrical constructions. All are eye-catching and satisfying to fold, and the finished constructions are pleasing to behold. Also included are short sections on the mathematics behind the shapes and optimum color choices." -David Petty, author of Origami A-B-C "In this colorful book, you'll find wonderful original origami modular creations. Meenakshi's clear instructions and helpful hints will have you zipping through these modules as well as improvising your own." -Rachel Katz, co-author of FUN FOLDS: Language Learning Through Paper Folding "Marvelous Modular Origami is a colorful addition to the literature of mathematical origami." -Florence Temko, author of many origami and other craft books

This is a step by step how-to book for making modular origami models based on polyhedra. It seems like there are myriad modular origami designs out there these days; anything that joins goes. However, in this book, Meenakshi Mukerji's sixth, she still has much more to offer, with the designs presented some of her best yet. After a successful Exquisite Modular Origami, this second volume is a natural follow up. Handpicked by the author, the models are not only beautiful, but have been subjected to rigorous design criteria such as sturdiness of the locking mechanism, easy starting paper proportions, mostly squares, and absence of inserts or separate joining units. The aesthetic appeal lies in clean well defined lines. The designs are all-new and like before, works of three new, very creative guest artists have been included as well. In grayscale, the book is practically a bargain because it is as effective as folding from a color book. Color photos of most designs are on the cover for your viewing pleasure. Just when you think you are running out of satisfying modular origami to fold, here now you have dozens more exciting new ones to enjoy. Do visit the author's popular website www.origamee.net for more ideas and color photos.

Some praise for her previous books in the same subject, Marvelous Modular Origami (2007), Ornamental Origami: Exploring 3D Geometric Designs (2009), and Origami Inspirations (2010) is below:“Meenakshi's work is both intricate and lovely. She's greatly respected in the origami world, one of the well-known world leaders in modular origami. Her books offer a nice exposition of the mathematical elements, but you're not being hit over the head with math lessons. You learn things without even realizing that you have.” —Robert Lang, world's leading origami artist“A whole book [Origami Inspirations] full of amazingly attractive new modular pieces, highly recommended to all modular folders and those wanting to dabble in this pastime. High standard of diagramming and model novelty applied throughout.”—David Petty, British Origami Society“Mukerji presents yet another colorfully illustrated book, Origami Inspirations, showing in clear diagrams how to make complex three-dimensional figures by folding paper.”—SciTech Book News“Ornamental Origami is a wonderful book for both math and origami lovers alike. The author provides, clear descriptions and beautiful photographs.”—MAA Reviews“Ornamental Origami is essentially a study of polyhedra but in a way that brings out the symmetry in subtle ways. It builds up very complicated results from simple modules so that even a beginner in origami can follow and learn about polyhedral symmetry by assembling them. It should definitely find a place in school teaching or mathematics clubs.”—John Sharp, The London Mathematical Society Newsletter

This is a step by step how-to book for folding stunning single sheet origami. You will be amazed that these designs are made out of something as ordinary as a single sheet of paper, employing no cuts or glue. Author Meenakshi Mukerji is the winner of Origami USA's 2005 Florence Temko Award and after four highly acclaimed books on modular origami, she has launched her first book on single sheet origami. The designs presented in this richly illustrated full color book are proven favorites, the diagrams sought after by avid folders worldwide. Expect hours of enjoyment folding several dozen models and variations. Most of them lie flat, so mount them on cards or frame them for gifts. For ages 12 and up. A preview may be found in http://www.origamee.net/book5/index.html "Meenakshi Mukerji is one of today's masters of modular origami, geometric designs comprised of multiple folded pieces of paper assembled without glue. In her newest book, she brings her ingenuity and creativity to designs made from a single piece of paper. Among the most appealing aspects of this book is the way she subtly manipulates a purely geometric design to form a flower (including a beautiful 12-petaled Hollyhock), a leaf, a butterfly, or familiar symbols such as the four suits from a deck of cards. Although many of her designs are complex and three-dimensional, requiring an abundance of both patience and dexterity to fold, she provides crystal-clear diagrams with lucid text and doesn't stint on providing perspective drawings (which are challenging and time-consuming to produce) when needed. In addition to presenting her own stunning designs, Mukerji offers up designs and biographies of three "guest folders" whose work is as stunning as her own. Of these designs, my favorite is the mind-boggling "Floral Perpetua," which uses a recursive (self-repeating) folding process to mimic the concentric layers of petals in a blooming flower. It's worth the price of admission all on its own. Like this spectacular model, Mukerji's book yields riches in perpetuity!" --Peter Engel, author of Origami Odyssey: A Journey to the Edge of Paperfolding, 10-Fold Origami, and Folding the Universe: Origami from Angelfish to Zen

This book unravels the mystery of Geometry in Origami with a unique approach: 64 Polyhedra designs, each made from a single square sheet of paper, no cuts, no glue; each polyhedron the largest possible from the starting size of square and each having an ingenious locking mechanism to hold its shape. The author covers the five Platonic solids (cube, tetrahedron, octahedron, icosahedron and dodecahedron). There are ample variations with different color patterns and sunken sides. Dipyramids and Dimpled Dipyramids, unexplored before this in Origami, are also covered. There are a total of 64 models in the book. All the designs have an interesting look and a pleasing folding sequence and are based on unique mathematical equations.

Modular origami is the latest craze in paper folding! These three-dimensional models are created from a number of small pieces of paper that are easily folded and then cleverly fit together to form a spectacular shape. They range from paper polyhedra to bristling buckyballs that are reminiscent of sea urchins—to ornate flower-like spheres. Each piece of paper is held by the tension of the other papers—demonstrating the remarkable hidden properties of paper, which is at the same time flexible but also strong! Author Byriah Loper has been creating modular origami sculptures for just five years, but in that time, he's pushed the upper limits of the art form with some of the largest, most complex geometric paper constructions ever assembled. While many geo-modular origami artists focus on creating dense floral spheres, Byriah has pioneered the open, linear "wire frame" approach, which results in a very complex-looking model that reveals the interior of its form. He exhibits his sculptures annually at the Origami USA convention in New York, and was recently a featured artist at the "Surface to Structure" exhibition at the Cooper Union gallery in the East Village. A great way to learn origami, the easy-to-follow diagrams and step-by-step instructions in this book show you how to fold the paper components and then assemble them to create 22 incredible models. Each model is a new challenge, and the paper sculptures you create look fantastic on your desk or shelf!
