About the Author
Meenakshi Mukerji (Adhikari) was introduced to origami in early childhood. She rediscovered origami in its modular form as an adult quite by chance in 1995. This newfound mathematical and structural side of modular origami rekindled her passion for the art, and soon after, she started designing and displaying origami on her popular website origamee.net.
In 2005, OrigamiUSA noticed Meenakshi's work and presented her with the Florence Temko award. In April 2007, her first book Marvelous Modular Origami was published followed in quick succession by four more books. She has been a featured artist and special guest at many origami conventions both in the USA and abroad. Although known for modular designs, she has published a book of her single sheet works as well. Meenakshi regularly contributes to various origami journals and exhibits her work as well. She is a member of Origami USA and British Origami Society, and an editor for OrigamiUSA’s online magazine, The Fold.
Born and raised in Kolkata, India, Meenakshi obtained her BS in electrical engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur, and a MS in computer science from Portland State University, Oregon. She worked as a software engineer for more than a decade. She is now at home in California devoting her time to family, designing and authoring origami and, of course, spreading the joy of origami.

With the advent of the internet, we all progressed a bit from basic cranes (I will never understate their importance, but they *are* basic) to what the masters are doing, and this progressed to a more thorough understanding for us all.
The art moved from simple (or complex) animals and such, towards modular designs.
I really embrace the process, but more importantly, so does NASA and Ikea.
If you are playing with basic cranes, then you need to buy the first volume. The folds are easier, and the assembly is easier.
This book moves a bit beyond.
I would suggest a basic understanding of tesselations.
I definitely like the links to websites and videos that will help you to learn the basics behind each model, but I fear they may become outdated over time. I can only hope that the editors help maintain/update the links as necessary.
