Flat or Bowed Kites. An unusual single-surface kite, in that it has many horizontal spars. Plenty of area for displaying art-work!

Basically a carved-up Diamond kite. Or, how to make a simple Diamond needlessly complicated! To be fair, it's actually quite a clever and eye-catching concept. With a subtle touch or two - like those trailing edges on the individual sails... T.P. (my-best-kite.com)

Issue 71: Dave's World - Thailand Intl Kite Festival

The minimalist geometric graphic on this kite works well. Structure-wise, it looks like what you get when you cross a Sode kite with a Diamond! T.P. (my-best-kite.com) "Tan Gram_2012-04-07_111314" Cropped from a photo by richdurant on Flickr (cc).

First Flight April 2012 Tan Gram Kite built with Holm Struck -- Ft Worden Kitemakers retreat March 2012

Looks like a modern re-creation of a very old design - by Western standards! Essentially this is a Diamond kite with the sail divided into several smaller sails. Not what you would call a quick'n'easy build - but the kite would certainly draw some attention out on the flying field! T.P. (my-best-kite.com)

The Tiger depicted on this big Rokkaku kite looks a lot like some form of 'primitive' art. Hope I haven't insulted the artist! There's definitely a cuteness factor there that would draw smiles from onlookers as the kite flies. T.P. (my-best-kite.com)

Four gorgeous Rokkaku kites. Fairly straightforward to build although these have been adorned with quality art-work - a longer job. T.P. (my-best-kite.com) Cropped from a photo by Flickred! on Flkr.

New Tech Explorer Box Kite

The New Tech Explorer box kite has a modern take on a classic kite design.

What an awesome Asian-inspired design. The frame is a lattice of thin spars, which provides a fairly even and slightly convex surface for the giant face painted on. T.P. (my-best-kite.com)

A unique designer kite with an Indian feel. Twin drogues are helping to keep the kite on an even keel. Drogue 'chutes are a practical way to get stability without the potential pitfalls of using long flowing tails. T.P. (my-best-kite.com)
