From the back cover:

The catalog of creative modular origami models continues to grow. This new volume from Meenakshi Mukerji presents fresh and diverse origami models that are constructed from several identical folded units. The color possibilities are endless, and the variations presented with main models show that design possibilities are endless as well. This richly illustrated book full of colorful, inspiring photographs provides instructions for over 30 models, with clear, crisp, and easy-to-follow diagrams. The origami basics provided make it accessible to beginners, with models ranging from beginner to challenging intermediate skill level.

This book premieres work from four emerging artists in the world of modular origami: Carlos (Leroy) Cabrino of Brazil, Daniel Kwan of the U. S., Aldo Marcell of Nicaragua, and Tanya Vysochina of Ukraine.

Praise for Origami Inspirations
“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

“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.”
—Rachel Katz, OrigamiwithRachelKatz.com, coauthor of Fun Folds
