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.

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.

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.

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.

Reseña del editor
This handsome book is aimed towards those with an intermediate skill level, but the origami basics included at the start of the book make it accessible to beginners. A number of beautiful models are offered, ranging from cubes to prisms to dodecahedra. As with the author’s two previous books, Origami Inspirations provides step-by-step instructions and color distribution suggestions to create the more than 30 intricate designs presented. The book also includes a chapter featuring designs by origami artists from around the world, and these projects provide a happy complement to the author’s own exciting inspirations in the rest of the book.Ver Descripción del producto

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.

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.
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.
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.
Like her first 2 books, this one is organized into sections with a clustering of similar or related models. Some of the models start with a rectangular sheet of paper while other start with a pentagon. Many of the models have "connector" units which give the models more color and helps keep the model together. Though non-traditional, the designs are clever non-traditional.
The floral cubes are my favorite: these are glorified cubes made with 6 sheets of paper. The six units are folded with much detailing to produce fanciful cubes. So fancy that you forget they are cubes.
Recommended for experienced folders who are not afraid to stray from the beaten path.
