Summary

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 units. 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.

Author Biography

Meenakshi Mukerji 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 Master's in Computer Science. She worked in the software industry for more than a decade before attending a class by Doug Philips, at which point she started folding modular origami and displaying it on her website. She has many designs to her credit. In 2005, Origami USA presented her with the Florence Temko award for her exceptional contribution to origami.
