As far as I know this design first appears as 'La helice del avion' (The plane propellor) in the extended version of 'El Mundo de Papel' by Dr Nemesio Montero, which was published by G Miranda in Edicions Infancia in Valladolid in 1951.



The design also appears as 'The Paper Spinner' in 'Party Lines' by Robert Harbin was published by the Olbourne Book Co in London in 1963.
