This year I had the good fortune of acquiring a couple of one-of-a-kind Rokkakus made and signed in 2006 by a talented kite builder named Frank Mitchell.
As much as I enjoy flying kites like these, I also appreciate learning about the history of their maker. As of yet, I’ve not been able to locate or identify anything about Frank Mitchell.
If anyone out there knows of Frank or has information about his life and work, please reach out. These kites are in great shape. They hit the sky on a regular basis, and are being preserved for the next generation.
