If you are a Japanophile or remotely interested in kites, then this book needs to be ordered! I bought it for a relative as a gift and when I received it to wrap and send, I couldn't put it down and had to order my own copy. It is out of print but many copies are available used and in good condition. Also of interest to anyone involved in handmade crafts and the Living National Treasures of Japan.
A beautiful and interesting book. Tal must have spoken to thousands of people in Japan as he gathered information and engaged with personalities. A nice level of history is in here too. A gentle and enthusiastic insight together with beautiful and fascinating images. You will never regret buying this book.
