Overview

Ahoy there! Paper Captain takes the reader through a century of nautical history with facts, figures, and stunning illustrations, then lets every fantasy sailor cut out and build twenty beautiful die-cut paper models—designed to float! Devised by the author and designer of Paper Pilot, Paper Captain is a beautifully illustrated voyage into the world of model boats, from speed boats and tugs to luxury liners and naval catamarans, bringing together stunning archival photographs and colorful technical drawings with expertly designed die-cut models that readers can cut out and assemble. The book presents innovative histories of twenty feats of maritime engineering drawn from maritime museums around the world, from the legendary British HMS Victory to the USS Monitor at the Mariner’s Museum in Virginia and the German U-505 at Chicago’s Museum of Science and Industry. Each boat is accompanied by its naval history, facts and statistics, and photographs of the vessels in action. Included are twenty finely detailed die-cut paper models, each presented with clear instructions for assembly and helpful advice for deploying your paper fleet—whether in the ocean or the bathtub.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Here's a clever book to help while away those long winter nights between haul-out and spring commissioning. Paper Captain is a quick trip through a couple centuries of nautical history, with brief tales of 20 famous vessels - but with a twist. Or maybe it's a clip, snip, fold, and stick." ~Boat US Magazine

"...charts a century of nautical history..." ~Publisher's Weekly
