The Joy of Kites (Hardback)Hans Silvester (author), Eric Fottorino (author)
Hardback Published: 26/05/2008
For thousands of years, kites have allowed human beings to possess the sky. Whether they resemble fish, dragons, birds, mythical animals or just bits of coloured paper, kites have given wings to the people that hold their strings. Over the course of his many voyages around the world, Hans Silvester has captured the flight of these great birds of the imagination. From China to Bolivia, from Italy to Sri Lanka, each of his photographs catches the beauty and grace of these objects, which belong both to the world of children and adults alike.
