The History and Dangers of Flight (2003) 20 by 20 by 5 inches, 3 scrolling pages, unique book. $2400. SOLD 3/13

This 1960's gas powered U-control model airplane has been modified and rebuilt by Peter and Donna Thomas. The texts, outlining the history and dangers of flight, were written and illustrated by Donna Thomas. These texts, reminiscent of sky-borne advertisements and time lines, have been bound as scrolls to the propeller and to the tail of the plane. The wings and texts are made using Peter's handmade papers. A colophon attached to the sparkplug resides, as a prayer, inside the bored out cylinder of the motor.
