Origami is an ancient art, yet modern paper folders can still invent fascinating new folds. Origami Paper Airplanes is filled with new and outstanding folds that will delight, amuse, and inspire paper folders of all ages. They offer a wide variety of designs that are rated according to skill level. Everyone, from beginners to experienced folders, will find something here to delight the hand and eye.

Each book opens with four pages of instructions in basic folding techniques, the symbols used in the book and a discussion of the various papers you work with. Then come the specific folds - Origami Paper Airplanes offers 28 different designs of aircraft that include traditional planes, new creations, and other flying objects such as windmills and frisbees. Extremely detailed technical drawings, in color, accompany the reader every step of the way from the very first crease through to the remarkable finished creation.

With their elegant and fascinating folds, these are among the most innovative origami books available. They are suited for folders of all ages and skill levels. Thoroughly tested and carefully designed instructions make it possible for anyone to achieve results on the first try.

Excerpted from the Introduction:

To All the Children of Icarus

The pilot and his crew are happy to welcome you on board this book dedicated to air and space. Our company owns a fleet consisting of 26 airplanes (gliders, delta wings) and flying objects (propeller, frisbee) ready to travel over the earth with you. We serve four destinations: traditional folds, new creations, flying objects, and collectibles. We will carry out the usual last-minute inspections before takeoff: adjustment of the wings and fitting of the ailerons and stabilizers. All the flight instructions are outlined at the beginning of the book (pages 4 to 9) in order that your time on board be as comfortable as possible. We will fly at a reasonable altitude without touching the "ceiling." We will reach our cruising speed after several hours of practice, seated comfortably in our armchairs. We hope that you will have a pleasant and relaxing time in our company and we with you a "bon voyage."
