Paperback / softback
Making paper airplanes doesn't feel like science (although this book explains some of the science behind flying paper airplanes), and it's not quite art. Near as we can figure, launching a regular old piece of paper so that it soars is pure magic. With magic in mind, we present step-by-step instructions for folding aerobatic amazements. The 10 airplanes in this book are the best we've ever seen, from the Nakamura Lock (which could just be the best-flying paper airplane you've ever folded) to the Spy Plane (designed to fly high and stay aloft for a longer time than most other paper airplanes). This big book comes complete with 40 sheets of flight-tested, ready-to-fold paper, printed on both sides in a variety of 20 colorful patterns, including leopard print, wood grain, hot rod flames and lose-it-on-the-lawn grass. It's everything you need to rule the skies. Comes with: 56 page book, 40 sheets of custom-designed paper.
