Book Description : Kites: The Art of Using Natural Materials is a collection of images which show how the beauty, intricacy and delicacy of natural materials have been used to form flying structures. The author uses leaves, plants, trees, paper and bamboo to make kites that bring delight to both mind and eye. Throughout the book the images show how the different shapes, colours and textures of the natural materials have been combined to form structures which are real kites…..that fly! This combination of beauty and practicability is evident in the images that seek to inform as well as delight. Although not in any way intended to be a primer, the notes and detailed images give some indication of how these kites have been constructed. The materials themselves are identified.
