A set of seven cloisonne pins commemorating kite designs by Peter Lynn (New Zealand). Includes the Centipede, Manta Ray, Fugu, Octopus, Myrtle the Turtle, Tri-D Delta, and Buggy and Peel (two pins connected by chain). Each pin is attached to a cardstock backing with its title and story, enclosed in a plastic bag. Set includes a two-page biography of Lynn. Kite pin design and production became a fad in the 1990s, and many kitemakers designed their own pins to trade and give away at kite festivals.
