Descripción del producto


I found this book on modular origami enticing. The full-color photos on the cover and throughout the book are captivating and make the book live up to its title. … I highly recommend this book.
—Carla Moldavan, Mathematics Teaching in the Middle School, April 2012

A piece of paper has so much potential. Origami Inspirations is a guide filled with origami projects to be taken on by those of varying skill levels with origami. Presented in full color, Meenakshi Mukerji proceeds to break down the projects into step by step instructions, an introductory of many basic techniques, and organizes the projects based on the predominant technique in each. For anyone looking to get into origami or those who have some knowledge but seeking more ideas, Origami Inspirations may be what they are looking for.
Library Bookwatch, June 2011

Mukerji presents yet another colorfully illustrated book, showing in clear diagrams how to make complex three-dimensional figures by folding paper. They include simple cubes, four-sink base models, and folding with pentagons. A miscellaneous section includes windmill base cubes, whipped cream, a star with spirals, and waves. Another section features models by guests, among them many different kinds of flowers and dodecahedron.
SciTech Book News, February 2011

If you are familiar with Meenakshi Mukerji’s previous origami publications, then Origami Inspirations will not disappoint. … this is a great origami book for those who are dedicated to modular origami. … it is well suited for intermediate folders who are stout of character and have a strong sense of determination.
—Origami Resource Center

A whole book full of amazingly attractive new modular pieces. This book is highly recommended to all modular folders and those wanting to dabble in this pastime. Readers who purchased previous volumes in this series [Marvelous Modular Origami and Ornamental Origami] should, no doubt, unhesitatingly order this volume because of the high standard of diagramming and model novelty applied throughout the series. 
—David Petty, British Origami Society, May 2010

The comprehensive nature of this book makes it a wonderful selection for both beginners and experts alike. I was particularly taken with the many models that can be made with just six units-the 'butterfly' cube being an outstanding example of a most pleasing form.
—Rachel Katz, OrigamiwithRachelKatz.com, May 2010

Biografía del autor

Meenakshi Mukerji (Adhikari) was introduced to origami in her early childhood by her uncle Bireshwar Mukhopadhyay. She rediscovered origami in its modular form as an adult, quite by chance in 1995, when she was living in Pittsburgh, PA. A friend took her to a class taught by Doug Philips, and ever since she has been folding modular origami and displaying it on her very popular website www.origamee.net. She has many designs to her own credit. In 2005, Origami USA presented her with the Florence Temko award for her exceptional contribution to origami.

Meenakshi was born and raised in Kolkata, India. She obtained her BS in electrical engineering at the prestigious Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur, and then came to the United States to pursue a Masters in Computer Science at Portland State University in Oregon. She worked in the software industry for more than a decade but is now at home in California with her husband and two sons to enrich their lives and to create her own origami designs. Some people who have provided her with much origami inspiration and encouragement are Rosalinda Sanchez, David Petty, Francis Ow, Rona Gurkewitz, Ravi Apte, Rachel Katz, and many more.

Meenakshi Mukerji was awarded the 2005 Florence Temko Award by OrigamiUSA for her contributions to origami. She is the author of Marvelous Modular Origami and Ornamental Origami: Exploring 3D Geometric Designs, and she maintains the popular modular origami website, www.origamee.net.

No importa cuántos libros he leído sobre el tema de origami Sigo impresionado por la habilidad de las personas a medida que giran una hoja de papel en una forma tridimensional compleja. Este libro contiene una serie de instrucciones detalladas sobre cómo crear algunas formas increíbles. Hay imágenes en color de los resultados finales y sería difícil no sentirse intimidados cuando se mira en el producto terminado cuando haga su primer doblez.
Las reglas geométricas de ángulos y longitudes de los lados son la base para el plegado precisa necesaria para mantener todo organizado, por lo que hay una gran cantidad de matemáticas subyacentes. Sin embargo, el punto real del libro es la creación de obras de arte, se necesita un mínimo conocimiento de las matemáticas con el fin de seguir las instrucciones. Por lo tanto, el libro es inusual, ya que podría ser utilizado para los mismos efectos en ambas clases de matemáticas y arte.

El libro no se si es bueno o malo, lo unico que se es que no se puede leer, cada 3 o 4 páginas que se pasan, hace que se bloquee el Kindle, una y otra y otra y otra vez; por favor arreglen ese problema.

Inspiring Models of Origami Inspirations 11 de diciembre de 2010
Por Joy Dutta - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato: Tapa blanda
I can proudly say that I have all the three books of this author! Like her first two books, this one also shows how to make some exciting and pretty looking models with very clear diagrams.

First section of the book gives several tips for better folding as well as mathematical information on models based on geometry. Second and third sections contain several diagrams for a variety of cubes. Remaining part of the book contains diagrams for decorative dodecahedra.

The models based on pentagons in this book are a new twist to modular origami. I love making the traditional lily (it looks so pretty and real) and the same made from a pentagon looks much better. And then there are 5 different flower dodecahedra made with pentagons. However, my favorite model from this book is 'Whipped Cream Star' which appears on the cover of the book. The simplicity of the unit of this model is quite amazing.

Some well known artists from different parts of the world also have contributed to this book. These models range from intricate geometric assembly such as 'Four Interlocked Triangular Prism' by Daniel Kwan to flower-type assembly of Dahlia by Tanya Vysochina.

In short, one more must have from Meenakshi Mukerji for anyone interested in Modular Origami.

Needs More Detailed Illustrations or Video 20 de enero de 2012
Por Just An Ordinary Gal - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato: Tapa blanda Compra verificada
I yearn to make the origami pictured on the cover, but I cannot figure out how to do it.

I get through a page and three-quarters of steps. After that, the directions are obtuse for me.

I wish the author, who is a celebrated origami artist, would sell some videos.

Truly Inspiring Origami Inspirations 11 de agosto de 2014
Por Deepika Rao - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato: Tapa blanda
Like Meenakshi Mukerji's earlier books, this book starts with good introduction to Origami, essential tips and tools while folding, She also gives suggestions regarding the right paper to fold. The diagrams in the book follows standard Origami symbols. The author gives an introduction to Platonic, Archimedean and Kepler-Poinsot solids. Learning the structure of various polyhedra facilitates in assembling several modular Origami models. What I specially like about Meenakshi Mukerji's books is that she also explains the Math behind some models with a short proof (For instance, dividing a square into one thirds, forming a pentagon from square etc.. I had not done these since high school :-) ). It is fun learning with folding. The book starts with various designs to fold a cube. This is followed by models that needs to be folded from Pentagonal sheets. The book has clear instructions to make a pentagon from Square. The model that I loved most is Whipped Cream Star. This model is a pleasure to fold.

Amazing constructions using such simple rules 18 de octubre de 2011
Por Charles Ashbacher - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato: Tapa blanda
No matter how many books I read on the subject of origami I remain impressed by the skill of people as they turn a flat sheet of paper into a complex three-dimensional shape. This book contains a series of detailed instructions on how to create some incredible shapes. There are color images of the final results and it would be hard not to be intimidated when looking at the finished product when you make your first fold.
The geometric rules of angles and side lengths are the basis for the precise folding needed to keep everything organized, so there is a great deal of underlying mathematics. However, the real point of the book is the creation of works of art, minimal knowledge of mathematics is needed in order to follow the instructions. Therefore, the book is unusual in that it could be used to equal effect in both math and art classes.

Beautiful diagrams, interesting compilation 25 de febrero de 2013
Por Irene - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato: Tapa blanda Compra verificada
This is a strong collection of somewhat related diagram sets that produce 3D modular origami cubes, dodecahedrons etc. Good for intermediate to advanced levels, although enough information is provided in the work that ambitious beginners would probably be more than able to make the folds. The pictures of completed works are also quite nice for a slim paperback.

More than most modular origami books, this particular one focuses on a range of possible variations on a particular theme, this results in a more detailed series of related pieces, should the folder desire. However, people who are looking for a wide range of dis-similar pieces may find the book a bit repetitive.

I would suggest this book to those interested in modular origami.
