Beautiful Kites From 1957

Usually when I see people flying kites at the beach, I associate the pace to a humdrum senior citizen activity. Serene for a few initial moments, dull for the rest.

But then I saw these. I may have a change of heart. Posted by Mondoblog, these kites were showcased at University of Illinois' "Kite Derby Day" in 1957.

"All the entries shown here are from the sophomores in the department of Industrial Design."

Evocative of Buckminster Fuller but BETTER! Yeah, I said it. I don't get the Buckminster Fuller hype.

Beautiful objects.
