MBK Kite Books

The Complete Catalog

You have probably come across the big kite books on making Soft, Dowel and Skewer based designs by now. By 'books' I mean downloadable, printable e-books in PDF file format. Publications on individual kites are also available as e-books in the same format.

The complete catalog is listed below. Feel free to browse around.

Shhh... this is a library remember!

NEW!

You'll always find the very latest release here. This time, it's the first design of the new Paper Series. The Paper Sled kite - if you've made any of my Dowel or Skewer series kites, you probably know what the next kite books are going to be! All in good time...





MBK Book Bundle

OK, if you are not a complete 'kite nut' like me, you might want to skip this section. ...

Still here? Good!

As my kite books have accumulated, it has made sense to offer all my published material plus the miscellaneous titles in...

See over there on the right!

The price of this Bundle is just a fraction of the total cost of buying all the e-books separately.

This is a wise and frugal choice if you will be making kites for years to come.





Compilations Of Kite Books

The main purpose of these e-books is to provide all of this site's kite plans and instructions in a more convenient form than live web pages. They also contain many designs that do not have instructions posted on the pages of this website... 





Individual Paper Kites

Who hasn't got paper and tape at home? Just one design so far - the MBK Paper Sled...

Individual Soft Kites

A friend of mine is of the opinion that you won't find kite-making resources like these anywhere else on the Web. I do tend to put some effort into it - so perhaps he's right :-)

Really, anyone can make these kites. It's just a matter of taking it step by step...





Individual Dowel Kites

If you want to 'try it in case you like it', buying an inexpensive set of instructions for a single kite design of your choice might be the way to go. Some of these include a BONUS design that is twice the size (4 times the sail area) and yet packs down to the same length as the Dowel version. Here they are...

Can't Read Your e-book?

The PDF file format used by my e-books is good for downloading and printing off text and pictures from the Internet. So, the 'book' is actually a file stored on your computer or tablet. All you need is the free and easy-to-use Adobe Reader installed on your computer.

PDFs are designed for easy magnification of the print size if desired, for on-screen reading, and easy selection of pages to print out. When you do a print-out, the content is nicely formatted on each page. Unlike just trying to print straight from a website!

By securing a full printout in a simple binder you can make a handy addition to your collection of kite books. Make a start on your own kiting library today!
