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.

Wondrous One Sheet Origami is a how-to book full of beautiful origami designs covering a wide range of folding levels from simple to high intermediate, with more emphasis on the latter. The book is meant for audiences 12 years of age and above, and children folding at higher than age level. Most of the designs are flat and suitable for mounting on cards or framing as gifts. Features • Richly illustrated full-color book with clear, crisp diagrams following international standard, and an abundance of photographs of finished models • Select designs hand-picked by the author based on social media responses • Most of the designs incorporate color-change, a technique showing both sides of paper for enhanced beauty "Meenakshi Mukerji'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." –Dr. Robert J. Lang "Meenakshi Mukerji is one of today's masters of modular origami, designs comprised of multiple pieces of paper. She also brings her ingenuity and creativity to designs made from a single piece of paper. Among the most appealing aspects of her single sheet work is the way she subtly manipulates a purely geometric form to fold a flower, a leaf, a butterfly, or card suits." –Peter Engel

Expect hours of enjoyment folding over a dozen models and learn about polyhedra while you enjoy. Remember to visit the author's popular origami website, http://www.origamee.net. 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

Keywords:Design Science;Art;Architecture;Geometry;Polyhedra;Tilings;Graph Theory;Symmetry;Proportion;Golden MeanReviews: “This book, on the mathematics of natural and artful form, is a lively new entrant to the small shelf of those fine works.” Scientific American “If I had only one book in my library to which I refer for mathematics questions in art and architecture, this would be the one.” Nexus Network Journal “A worthy volume rediscovers the golden mean for readers in the postgeometry generation.” BYTE “… Kappraff's book is nothing less than the first textbook of design science.”Bulletin of the Buckminster Fuller Institute “This is no less than an early and strong move toward implementing Buckminster Fuller's call for a Comprehensive Anticipatory Design Science. Even a less-than-rigorous reading will convince you that something important is being presented here.” Whole Earth Review “For the visually oriented person with a hunger to understand pattern, Connections can be a bridge to a new world.” American Journal of Physics “A spectacular presentation of design science — ‘the grammar of space’ — that explores with rich details instances of similarity, proportion, tilings, graphs, lattices, polyhedra, isometries, and symmetry in art, architecture, engineering, and science. Punctuated with exercises and problems (thus making the monograph useful as a course or seminar text); illustrated with over 200 figures; supported by an extensive multi-disciplinary bibliography that is well-referenced to the text. A superb option for interdisciplinary seminars.” American Mathematical Monthly

Too hip to be square. Shape up with this mind-blowing set that--quite honestly--we didn’t even know was possible until our editors discovered the exquisite artwork of Heinz Strobl’s Snapology Project. Inspired by his work, our designers have created Geometric Origami, a new, sophisticated origami kit for advanced origami artists. Create 15 paper projects using the specially designed strips included in the set: Tetrahedron, Hexahedron, Octahedron, Dodecahedron, Icosahedron, Truncated Tetrahedron, Cuboctahedron, Icosidodecahedron, Rhombic Triacontahedron, Snub Dodecahedron, Zonohedron, and Buckyballs. Don’t worry--there’s even a few pronounceable shapes like an Egg and a Geometric Bracelet, plus more surprises. (We would include them here, but we’re still looking up their proper spellings.) * Gain a whole new perspective on geometry and the world of origami. * Great fun for the entire family--or for your local geometry professor. Geometric Origami offers the next generation of art and paper crafting for origami enthusiasts.
