Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Maori kites are enjoying a remarkable cultural resurgence. In his introduction to his revised and expanded edition of the classic work on this art form, Professor Hirini Moko Mead says Bob Maysmor's book has played a valuable role in the revival of interest in kite-making.

Te Manu Tukutuku covers the history and tradition, techniques and materials of the ancient kites and describes how contemporary artists and kite-makers have further developed the art. Also included are easy instructions on how you can make a Maori kite.
