Himmelsstürmer (1963)


This book is not about spaceflight but has a lot of nice space-age illustrations. It is a book of paper airplane models but as you see I don't know if it came with a kit or these were ideas to build. I am a fan of Thunderbirds (Gerry and Sylvia Anderson, 1964), and this has that same futuristic feel to the building and aircraft. The title roughly translates to "a person with highflying (and idealistic) plans."
