This is a step by step how-to book for folding stunning single
sheet origami. You will be amazed that these designs are made out
of something as ordinary as a single sheet of paper, employing no
cuts or glue. Author Meenakshi Mukerji is the winner of Origami
USA's 2005 Florence Temko Award and after four highly acclaimed
books on modular origami, she has launched her first book on single
sheet origami. The designs presented in this richly illustrated
book are proven favorites, the instructions sought after by avid
folders worldwide. Expect hours of enjoyment folding several dozen
models and variations. Most of them lie flat, so mount them on
cards or frame them for gifts. Though a grayscale version of the
original book, most finished models are shown in color on the
cover. For ages 12 and up.

"Meenakshi Mukerji is one of today's masters of modular origami,
geometric designs comprised of multiple folded pieces of paper
assembled without glue. In her newest book, she brings her
ingenuity and creativity to designs made from a single piece of
paper. Among the most appealing aspects of this book is the way she
subtly manipulates a purely geometric design to form a flower
(including a beautiful 12-petaled Hollyhock), a leaf, a butterfly,
or familiar symbols such as the four suits from a deck of cards.
Although many of her designs are complex and three-dimensional,
requiring an abundance of both patience and dexterity to fold, she
provides crystal-clear diagrams with lucid text and doesn't stint
on providing perspective drawings (which are challenging and
time-consuming to produce) when needed. In addition to presenting
her own stunning designs, Mukerji offers up designs and biographies
of three "guest folders" whose work is as stunning as her own. Of
these designs, my favorite is the mind-boggling "Floral Perpetua,"
which uses a recursive (self-repeating) folding process to mimic
the concentric layers of petals in a blooming flower. It's worth
the price of admission all on its own. Like this spectacular model,
Mukerji's book yields riches in perpetuity "
