Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Go fly a kite...and much, much more! Whether you yearn for a simple-to-make and use project or a one-of-a-kind, award-winning beauty, this ultimate, unbeatable guide has everything you need to know. Over 1500 illustrations cover the process of building a range of kites--including 37 of the world's most popular models: the Bug, the Sting Ray, the Kaleidakite, three kinds of Fighters, and Stunt Kits, plus others that resemble a coffee cup, sled, and even an immense dragonfly. You can stop there, or use these patterns as a take off point; just let your imagination soar and transform any one of the projects into something completely new and special. With basic instructions on aerodynamics, sewing, heat-sealing, and safety, there won't be any problem constructing a kite that will catch the wind and fly sky-high! Bonus: a list of nationwide festivals and events, kite clubs, and stunt kiting. The author lives in Fair Lawn, NJ. 464 pages, 8 x 9.
