The Art of the Japanese Kite (Used)


This seminal text has been a gateway for generations of kite makers. In this informative, inspiring and comprehensive book, Tal Street, artist, kite maker, and enthusiast, explores the fascinating world of kite making in Japan. More than an object of play, the kite is a signifier of place, with master craftspersons at work behind each design. More than a book about kites, The Art of the Japanese Kite is as much about a westerner’s attempt to immerse themselves in the spirit of Japanese culture.
