Klara Hobza's The New Millennium Paper Airplane Book is a collection of some of the artist's favorite paper airplanes and stories by their creators, gathered from The New Millennium Paper Airplane Contest exhibition, held at the New York Hall of Science in Queens, New York, in 2008. This project was itself an homage to the historic paper airplane contest that took place in 1967 at the same venue--which, in a note of minor irony, was built to display rockets for the 1964 World's Fair. The competition was open to the public, and participants were invited to fly their planes in a number of judging categories including distance flown, duration aloft, beauty, spectacular failure and children's designs. For this book, Hobza has also included some additional paper airplane contributions from fellow enthusiasts met along the way. Each page within the book is designed to be torn out and folded into a paper airplane. A complete list of step-by-step folding instructions is also included, so you can remake your favorites.Klara Hobza was born in Plzen, Czech Republic, and currently lives and works in New York City.
