Format: Hardcover
I had been searching for a good paper airplane book for a long time looking for plans that involved only paper and folding - no scissors, tape, glue, paper clips, or anything extra. While travelling for work in Arizona several years ago I found this book at a Barnes & Noble - it's the best paper airplane book I have ever run across. Some of the folds can be challenging but the author's use of flip-through animation in the corners of the book help tremendously. I've built and flown every plane in the book and they all perform incredibly - especially "The Plane". Buy this book and you'll be amazed by the looks and performance of your paper airplanes.

I was given this book a few years ago by my grandfather; my grandparents knew that I liked origami, electronics, and legos. It's an incredible book; I spent long hours folding airplane after airplane. My school administrators (the philistines) lumped artwork such as the AWACS with any other form of flying paper, and this caused much strife. This is a wonderful book; an ideal gift for anyone from a child of 10 who knows some origami to a college student. Having lost my copy years ago, I'm only replacing it now, but I treasure this gift more than any video game or radio-controlled car.

I was delightfully surprised by this book. The airplanes are great examples of origami, they look good and they fly! You'll discover some unique and dramatic looking airplanes here. The folds may be difficult if you're not familiar with origami, but there is an ingenious "flip-page" tutorial printed on the page edges that illustrate the tricky folds.

John Collins' instructions are concise and clear, making the plane construction easy. He also includes "flip animation" drawings in the margins to actually demonstrate some of the more intricate folds. I like that all of his planes can be made from standard 8.5 x 11 inch paper. My son and I had a great time with this book!
