Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 050027942X, Paperback)

This elegantly designed, unusually formatted book packs a surprising punch in just 96 pages. Kites surveys the ancient art of constructing and flying Japanese kites, from the classic to the contemporary. The thorough treatment includes discussions of traditions, lore, materials, anatomy, history, and aerodynamics of kite flying. Included are instructions for making and flying one's own kite, as well as a glossary of terms, profiles of famous kite-makers, and lists of Japanese kite festivals, Japanese kite associations, and museums around the world. The delicate integration of illustration and type make this highly accessible text as easy on the eyes as the lush, full-color kites that seem to fly from the pages at every turn.
