This book is not a kit book nor is it paperback. It is a hardback. Very beautifully illustrated and unique book. The ISBN on the book is apparently incorrect, as when I type the ISBN shown on the book, another title comes up. But, this book definitely is the title shown above by Jeremy Boyce, hardback in excellent condition (2001) Published in the UK. Sixty four very dense informative and well illustrated pages. Perfect for a kite lover.
