Fold and fly realistic paper airplanes with this easy origami kit.

Simple Origami Airplanes Mini Kit presents a collection of realistic origami paper airplanes from well-known author and paper aviation expert Andrew Dewar. Dewar has spent decades perfecting the art of folding easy paper airplanes that both look great and fly well. Simple Origami Airplanes Mini Kit features models with sturdy wings and fuselages—these designs are so perfectly balanced that a gentle throw results in amazing flights, time after time.

All the origami projects are designed to be simple enough to be considered "origami-for-kids" kits and can be assembled by beginning origami folders. Paper airplanes are a great way for children to learn origami and gain interest and appreciation for this fascinating art form. The flashy folding papers already have plane images printed on them, making the finished origami planes look as impressive as they fly. As a bonus, the accompanying DVD shows precise instructions and tips from the designer.

  • Full-colored 32-page booklet
  • Step-by-step instructions and diagrams

About the Author:
Andrew Dewar was born in Toronto, Ontario, and graduated from Ryerson Polytechnic Institute (B.A. Journalism) and University of Toronto (M.A. Japanese Studies, Library and Information Science) before moving to Japan in 1988. After completing his doctoral studies in library science at Keio University, he joined the faculty of a junior college in Japan. Soon after arriving in Japan he rediscovered his childhood love of designing and flying paper airplanes. His passion for paper airplanes led him to become president of the Fukushima Paper Airplane Club. Dewar has published over 30 paper crafting books and kits. He also teaches paper airplane workshops and does seminars at schools, libraries, community centers and museums. He lived and taught library science in Fukushima, Japan, until the giant earthquake and nuclear accident in March 2011, when the city became unsafe. After a brief stay in Canada, he's returned with his family to Gifu, Japan.
