Format: Paperback
The cover of this book states that this book contains "20 projects to make and fly". This is entirely misleading as there are not 20 projects to make and fly. Several of the "projects" have you rip out the page, wad them into a ball and either toss them into the air, or find a tall building from which to drop them. I guess if you want to get technical this could be construed as flying. At least three other projects have you create non-flying objects; in fact one of them even suggests that you not try to fly the project after creating it. This book is really an art book disguised as a paper-airplane book. It is a nice looking book. The artwork is fairly pleasant to look at, but the cover really tricks you into thinking you are buying something you are not. I purchased this book for my son, who loves to fold and fly paper airplanes, as a Christmas present. I am sad that I have to return it. I am commenting, which I rarely do, because I feel like I was misled by the claims on the front of the book.

Format: Paperback
Kelly Lynn Jones has put together an art book, which includes some of the artists from her collective 'Little Paper Planes', that is really fun and inspiring... The only thing that I don't like about the book is trying to decide whether or not I should remove the perforated pages and set to work 'building' the most awesome paper planes that I've ever seen! Guess I'll have to consider buying another copy. The book happens to include one of my favorite artists, Michael C. Hsiung, that of course adds to the excitement of having this on my shelf. And of course Little Paper Planes the book has introduced me to some new favorites just like littlepaperplanes.com always does.

The majority of the artists featured in this book flip the bird to traditional planes and do as they please. I enjoyed the book, but know ahead of time that this is not a book with '20 projects to make and fly'. Also, several of the instructions are careless and in need of reinterpreting. I would sleep on this one if you are looking for a book with cool paper planes.
