Visionary Renaissance genius Leonardo da Vinci designed and sketched many inventions that were centuries ahead of their time. He was obsessed with flight theory and aerodynamics, so many of his drawings were of innovative flying machines—most of which were never built during his lifetime. They existed only as ideas in da Vinci's fertile imagination and as sketches in his famous notebooks—until now!
This remarkable new collection of paper plane models by renowned paper artist Andrew Dewar presents replicas of 13 of Leonardo's most famous aviation inventions—most of which actually fly!
Each realistic model provides insights into the incredible mind of Leonardo da Vinci, and the detailed instructions, colorful diagrams and sturdy pop-out paper pieces make it easy to get the planes up into the air quickly—where the real fun begins!
