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
