Biggest Ever Book Of Paper Planes

2009 – 3 languages

This is another project with the Ivy Press, who produce consistently attractive books and are a delight to deal with. This is a collection of paper planes, along with full-colour templates. It’s the “biggest” in format – nearly A2!, if not in model count (12). Also available in Polish & Deutsch.

You’ll probably need to buy a larger bookshelf, for which I apologise. Practically speaking, all the designs work perfectly with A4 or A5 – using the larger sheets supplied with the book will require some “trimming” and a slightly higher launch velocity in order to escape the pull of the earth’s gravity;)

The complementary edition was “The Biggest Ever Book Of Origami“, curiously enough, smaller in format than this book. Someone’s telling a porky!
