This is quite a masterpiece! (Recycled Kites) is positive and encouraging as well as beautiful - I love your selection of photos and images!


Your book is fabulous, I love it. I learned a lot from the book and found it very thought provoking because every time I had a question it was answered. It was fun and it made me want to learn more. It's so excellent, well done, and well structured.

I saw your Rokkaku book on Amazon.  You've really done so much to advance and enhance the beauty of our kite science and happy pastime.

I enjoyed the book greatly. I read it cover to cover in one go.  I've not done any of the exercises but I thought the concepts were very well explained.

I bought the Kite Workshop Handbook and Miniature Kites books and they're both great.  They provide designs and guidelines invaluable to designing educational lessons about kites.
