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.

This book is just gorgeous. The creativity of these artists is just amazing. I purchased this for my son and he has enjoyed making several of the paper airplanes. Many of these airplanes are more like creative interpretations of an airplane but it only adds to the charm of the book. I may have to order another to keep in tact as it is that beautiful of a book.

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.

Love the concept of the book and thought it was really fun and easy to make the planes. It also includes biographies and Q&A's with the artists, all of them are so diverse!

Many of the artists in the book seemed to be stretching to fit within the concept. While I love creativity, it came across as phoning it in instead. I can't recommend.
