Publisher's Description

Shortlisted for the 2015 Paris Photo-Aperture Foundation PhotoBook Awards

Dutch visual artist Sjoerd Knibbeler’s most recent work involves folding paper to create model airplanes; not playthings, but reconstructions based on actual designs for military aircraft that never came to fruition. From mothballed top secret projects from the Cold War to more recent endeavours fallen victim to government cutbacks, the photographs of these sixteen paper planes have now been turned into a four-metre-long fold-out page with detailed texts about the history of each on the reverse. Besides being of interest from a military, technical, or historical perspective, the book carries with it a double meaning: its subjects remain forever confined to the paper on which they were drawn.
