The New Millennium Paper Airplane Book by Klara Hobza is an eccentric collection of paper airplane designs and related stories. Most were gathered by the artist during The New Millennium Paper Airplane Contest held at the New York Hall of Science in Queens, New York, in 2008, and there are additional contributions from other paper airplane enthusiasts Hobza met along the way. The planes and stories presented here, at times compelling in their poetic imperfection and spectacular failure, will enthrall the reader with their grand gestures of inventiveness, political defiance, and imagined victories over the human scale. This book is intended to disappear into the air, with pages that are designed to be ripped out, folded, and flown into the world! Also included is a complementary catalog of step-by-step folding instructions so that you can remake your favorites again, long after the pages are gone. The book's cover can even be folded into a hangar to house your paper fleet! The New Millennium Paper Airplane Book is part of a project by Klara Hobza for In the Public Realm, a program for emerging artists organized by New York City's Public Art Fund.
