The Art of the Japanese Garden

Author(s): David Young


Winner of the 2006 American Horitcultural Society Book Award! Gardening has reached new heights of sophistication, and this book profiles a number of the most notable gardens in Japan and beyond. The goal of a Japanese garden is to suggest a landscape, to depict famous natural scenes, or to evoke a particular artistic quality or atmosphere. Graveled courtyards, early aristocratic gardens, Zen gardens, and several other elements all play key roles in these extravagant landscapes. "The Art of the Japanese Garden" is a valuable resource for anyone interested in gardening, landscape design, and Japanese art and culture.
