Visually the book was great. I would have liked a little more information on the construction of the kites. Sky art at its best

Clear, detailed instructions for building kites, information on the various traditional styles and plenty of photographs make this a nice reference.

Modegi-san's book fills a real vacuum keeping us up to date in the contemporary life of traditional Japanese Kites. These are concise, well-written accounts of this vital Japanese cultural art form. Truly amazing just as kites---at the center of the festivals, villages across Japan working and playing together celebrating life with such zeal and exuberence---but equally remarkably, these paper and bamboo wings the villagers have produced for some four-hundred years and counting, this flying art, takes its rightful place among the world's extraordinary popular arts.
Thanks so much. I recommend it without reservation.
