Ornamental Origami: Exploring 3D Geometric Designs (英語) ペーパーバック – イラスト付き, 2008/11/21
Ornamental Origami is Meenakshi Mukerji’s second book on modular origami. Those of you who are familiar with her first book will find that this second installment to be just as well organized with a slew of new origami models.

Opening Ornamental Origami by Meenakshi Mukerji gives me a pleasurable feeling. The glossy paper pages with their colorful photographs that alternate with step-by-step how-to directions entice me to pick up paper squares right away and start folding. In this second book by Mukerji there are 40 more clever, geometric, modular origami models for paperfolding enthusiasts.

This is another excellent book by one of the rigami community’s highly-creative authors . . . and, just as with her first book, anyone looking to start out in decorative modular folding will also find this book a great resource.
―Anne LaVin's Origami Blog, February 2009
Ornamental Origami is a wonderful book for both math and origami lovers alike. . . . the author provides wonderful, clear descriptions and beautiful photographs. Another interesting aspect of the book is the afterward: a small collection of mathematical exercises related to folding paper. The problems were thought-provoking and again bridged the gap between math and origami.

Using color extensively in both diagrams and photographs, [Mukerji] walks readers through the elaborate constructions and illustrates the final pieces.

Meenakshi Mukerji’s book 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.

This book is an excellent contribution to the growing interest in and publications on origami, the art of paper folding. The author uses a special (construction) method called modular origami. That means she folds identical modules, called units which are assembled (on 'tabs' and 'pockets') to the final model. This method is also the content of the author's first book Marvelous Modular Origami which should be regarded as the basis of this new book. The author points out the underlying mathematics behind her origami. ... In marvelous coloured pictures, more than 40 modular origami models are shown with explicit instructions for the construction. ... The reader is invited to follow the passion of paper folding inspired by the beautiful examples in this book.
―Gertraud Ehrig, Zentralblatt MATH, September 2009
children can learn origami techniques to create beautiful and varied geometric shapes.
―Science News, November 2009
This book, for both beginners and experts, provides guidance in creating modular origami from the basic to the intricate, including planar origami models. The target audience includes artists, mathematicians, and students over twelve. ... The book's strengths include (1) explaining the symbols and terminology and (2) applying mathematics to the planar models. The diagrams in the book help users follow along. ... I recommend this book for math teachers who want to collaborate with art teachers.

This edition comes in full colour and the pages are glossy and rich in content.
The models are intricate and difficult to assemble, so I would not recommend this book to beginners (other than for the sheer pleasure of looking at them, that is).
These designs are quite precise as is common in books about unit origami and are comparable to the very best in the field (I am thinking of Fuse Tomoko, of course). There are some very original ideas which can be easily changed to create some interesting variations.
If unit origami is your thing, this book is a must buy.
L'ouvrage est divisé en 7 chapitres : bases de l'origami modulaire, modèles à partir de la base du moulin à vent, bouquets à partir de la base doublée, icosaèdres décoratifs, sonobe embellis, boules florales embellies et modules planaires
Chaque chapitre contient de 5 à 10 modèles, tous possédant de nombreuses variantes potentielles. Le tout est parfaitement expliqué. Autant dire qu'il y a des heures de pliage enchanté à venir !
