- japanese book by Katsutaka MUROOKA
A carefully done book, well bounded,
with a hard cover, which relate the main subjects covered
by Katsutaka Murooka, when during almost one year,
a grant from the Fondation Toyota let him improve
and satisfy his passion for kap.
This book is written in japanese,
with the titles of the chapters in English, plus two pages
in English, which syntax let the reader surprised, but finally,
it is understood as well.
Anyway, it can be found drawings
and photographs on the way to proceed, on the choice of
kites, on different experiments. There are many color pictures
that the author has visited during his travelling year.
He explains that he had many stir problems, which is not
surprising, as seen the rigs used. This handicap was compensated
by a very large angle lens, and he shot many remarkable
Katsutaka Murooka speaks with emotion
and respectfully of the Cerf-Volant Club de France,
and, page 38, is a print of the famous rosette of the CVCF.
It's a sincere book, heartly written, and I always have
a real pleasure to open it and flip through.
Katsutaka Murooka is president
of Japan Kite Aerial Photography Association.
