I mean by modular, that the book will be made up of several "modules" or part, which can be bought separately and which aim different goal : one will help the reader to learn the fundamentals, one will deal with advanced use, one will be rather a reference manual for every-day’s use, and one will present case studies.
So to answer to your question, it will take a bit from each of the three books you mentioned.
Several authors will contribute, and the work will be shared according to each one's skills, specialization and availability.

I don't know what it is a "modular" book.
And what kind of subject would you like to see ?
Asking otherwise, Lua.org currently published (to my knowledge) three books :
To which of them would the project book most look like?
- Reference Manual
- Programming in Lua
- Lua Programming Gems.
My language is French and I am possibly interested in contributing, but that all depends on the subjects, the amount of work, etc.
