Item Description...
In this informative, inspiring and comprehensive book, Masaaki Modegi, Chairman of The Japan Kite Association and Curator of the Tokyo Kite Museum, explores the fascinating history of kites and what they have meant to Japanese culture going back in time. Relying on the ample resources of the Museum and of the Kite Association, the book includes 50 color photographs, mostly of traditional kites of Japan, with a special focus on those of the Edo period, as well as kites of the world. In addition, Modegi discusses the many breathtaking kite-flying tournaments and festivals held around the country.
The instructional section begins with a chapter on materials and tools. Modegi explains why frames are mostly made of bamboo (its strong, flexible and lightweight) while the sails are usually fashioned out of handmade Japanese paper (washi), which is extraordinarily durable. Chapters on making kites offer instructions for five beginner-level, five intermediate-level and five advanced-level projects. The book concludes with a chapter on flying kites, an appendix, glossary and contact list.
The experience of making and flying a kite is exhilarating, enjoyed by people of all ages all over the world. This wonderful book will help both novice and experienced kite fliers enjoy it to the fullest.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Modegi's Making of Japanese Kites  Jul 9, 2008
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.
