Bibliography

The writer has made these twenty-five kites as varied in design as possible without using special tools or material.  A number of styles have purposely been left out, such as birds, flies, centipedes, Mother Goose pictures, etc., since these may be planned and constructed with little trouble by anyone who can make a good box kite.
