Title: Out of print kite magazines?
Post by: KiteLife on June 21, 2009, 04:05 PM
Hi, just polling...

Trying to assemble a list of all the hard copy kite-specific magazines (printed in English) that are no longer in publication.

Here's what I've got so far:

  • American Kite Magazine
  • Kite Tales (original AKA newsletter)
  • Stunt Kite Quarterly (SKQ)
  • Kite Passion
  • Sport Kiting (published by Roger Chewning)

Not considering typical club newsletters, etc, only publications which have seen decent circulation within a large portion of the kiting community.

Any missing from that list above?

Looking forward to seeing what else is out there!  :)

Drachen English (by the Whiteheads in NZ) published a few issues, and Aquiloni (Italy) was bi-lingual.
