My dad bought this book for me when I was 9 years old, and I was hooked on making paper airplanes for years–and so was he! This delightful book, first published in 1967, and still in print, brings together plans for the 20 best of the 11,851 entrants from the 1st International Paper Airplane contest sponsored by Scientific American. Some trivia: the smallest entry was .08″ x .00003 inches; the largest, 11 feet!. Guranteed to provide hours of amusement, and possibly even inspire careers in aerodynamics. (The polymathic primary author of this book–Jerry Mander–has also written a tremendous volume on the inherent evils of television as a medium, Four Arguments for the Elimination of Television).
