The Great International Paper Airplane Book
By Jerry Mander, George Dippel and Howard Gossage.
Aviation history has always sounded so boring to us. That is until we found this book! It is the official companion to the 1st International Airplane Competition – conducted by the Scientific American magazine in the winter of '66 and '67 – and written by the very serious men who were there. They provide some pretty profound commentaries on historical, aesthetic, technological and folkloric aspects of the humble paper airplane.
Profusely illustrated, they also give technical data, distance and time aloft records for a range of some 11, 851 paper plans from 28 countries that entered the competition. But that's not all! Herein, the winning planes are clearly and simply diagrammed so you can cut, fold and fly them yourself. Everyone's a winner when you've got the cheat sheets!
