" Splendid book ... Purists rejoice! Without doubt, this is a must have for modular enthusiasts and well worth investigating for others. -Davidy Petty, BOM, August 2007
Review of Marvelous Modular Origami from the Polish Origami Society (in Polish), including full color photos of of the models included in the book. -POS, July 2007
""... this is an excellent book ... Modular and kusudama fans will certainly want to add this book to their collection. And the non-modular-folders out there might just find that this is the book that hooks them on this origami specialty!"" -Origami USA magazin, January 2008
""... its deep value lies in its enhancement of rich mathematical concepts and its connections between mathematics and science. It is highly recommended."" -Mathematics Teacher, May 2008
""Published by A K Peters Ltd., Marvelous Modular Origami offers step-by-step instructions for more than 30 different modular origami structures. By the end of the year, the book was a bestseller."" -The Mercury News , May 2008
""Meenakshi Mukerji takes the ancient Japanese art form of origami ―or paper folding― far beyond the making of simple paper cranes."" -Cupertino COURIER, May 2008
""The book is intended for intermediate but beginners are also encouraged to try."" -European Mathematical Society, March 2008
so many ways, origami is the perfect activity for young children. Using only simple movements that even young ones can master at a high enough level, students can create beautiful things. The pot is made even sweeter by the fact that the cost of the raw materials is so low. By practicing first using printer paper, the students can hone their skills before moving on to the development of the finished product. This book contains some of the best and most functional origami patterns ever developed. The end results are spectacular and the directions are very easy to follow. I am on good terms with the education department at Mount Mercy College and will be showing them this book when classes start this fall. -Charles Ashbacher, Journal of Recreational Mathematics , March 2008
the help of this book, interested teachers and lecturers can learn to fold and put together beautiful symmetrical solids. The folding tasks will enrich geometry teaching and create interesting learning environments at secondary school level."" -Zentralblatt MATH, January 2009
""This book would be valuable to those who enjoy origami and want to try new folding methods and constructions. The directions, accompanied by quality illustrations, are easy to follow. This would be an excellent reference for members of a mathematics club who are looking for projects."" -Mathematics Teaching in the Middle School, November 2008

Reseña del editor

This richly illustrated book provides step-by-step instructions for the construction of over 30 different modular origami structures. The author describes basic folding techniques required to construct the “modules” that are used as building blocks to construct complex ornamental models. The diagrams are clear, crisp, and easy to follow, and are accompanied by inspiring color photographs. Additional tips encourage the reader to design their own original creations.

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

5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Mad for modulars! 8 de junio de 2007
Por Kathryn S. March - Publicado en
Formato: Tapa blanda Compra verificada
Meenakshi's web-site has been a hot spot for those of us who are hooked on making these intracate decorative balls for years and her new book does not disappoint! Very clear diagrams, helpful directions, multiple ways of forming the units to make different flowers appear, and the vast majority are not recycled from other books. For the bored begginer in origami on up!

Warning! This is an addictive hobby. Fortunately tiny sheets of square paper are inexpensive.......

5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Marvelous Modular Models! 3 de marzo de 2010
Por Joy Dutta - Publicado en
Formato: Tapa blanda
I got this book after browsing through the author's well-known website for modular origami. It's a very nice book explaining how to make great looking modular balls. The diagrams are very clear and well described with pictures showing how the modular unit should look like in each step. Being just over an year old in the origami world, I got stumped a couple of times but seeing the diagram of the next step helped me figure out the fold. All I needed was a little bit of practice and a bit more patience. For beginners like me, it's a good practice to make one unit using a printer paper and understand all the steps. Also, I recommend reading the 'Homogeneous Color Tiling' section of the book if one is using multiple colors for making a model.

I believe even a beginner, after getting a bit familiar with the basic origami diagrams, can fold the models in the book as there are no complex folds involved. I highly recommend this book. And if you are into polyhedra and floral models, it is a must.

5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas A good selection of platonic solids 17 de enero de 2012
Por Coma the Doof - Publicado en
Formato: Tapa blanda Compra verificada
I'm working out of this book right now. The projects (that's what I call each of resulting polyhedra) are really based on three basic models: sonobes (units folded slightly differently), floral ball (1:2 and 2:3 paper), and dodecahedra (different patterns on the faces, some with cutting; all use 30 units). So once you've folded the basic unit, all you have to figure out is the assembly. There are charts given to help visualize the platonic and archimedean faces; a sonobe table that summarizes the unit crease pattern for each solid; sonobe assembly guides; a table for making rectangles from squares; and a treatise on the mathematics of folding and design complete with exercises for the reader (the ancient college student in me just stood up and ran out of the room). I am struggling with the assembly for the floral ball right now; maybe using stiffer paper would help (actually, using stiffer paper when folding polyhedra is almost essential, at least for me). Oh, and don't forget the lists of suggested reading and websites at the back. All in all, yes, this book should be included in your kusudama/polyhedra origami library (along with Tomoko Fuse, Rona Gurkewitz and Bennett Arnstein, Kunihiko Kasahara, Kawasaki, and Robert Lang). Fold on!

2.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas final assembly directions are awful 15 de diciembre de 2012
Por Sam - Publicado en
Formato: Tapa blanda
Models are attractive, but it's very frustrating to make 30 modular units only to find that the directions for assembling them into the finished product are summarized in a **single,** poorly-explained image which can be seen at amazon-dot-com/gp/customer-media/product-gallery/1568813163/ref=cm_ciu_pdp_images_dav This book might be an OK purchase for someone who already has experience with origami platonic solids composed of more than a few units, but I recommend that someone with limited modular experience **borrow** this book from a library, read a model's directions from start to finish and see if (s)he can find help on the internet or from another folder.

4.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Good for the beginner. 7 de diciembre de 2007
Por Demian B. Bertozzi - Publicado en
Formato: Tapa blanda
It's a nice book about modular origami, but not so original. I've found some of its diagrams in other books or over the Internet, but here they're detailed and made easy to accomplish. Where the book is original, it's because minimal changes over past work of others. Nonetheless, it's a good compilation, worth buying if you are new to modular origami.
What is a real flaw is that the pics on the book aren't that good. Some are poorly shot. And others have average quality, but the models are badly assembled, greatly because most of the models deal with both sides colored paper, and the author build'em with single side colored ones. That spoils part of the beauty of the origamis.
The good news are that in the coda of the book you can find some mathematical descriptions of paperfolding theory, and some color schemes on how to assemble the polyhedra contained in this book. An overall good book. For the beginner.
