Publisher Comments:

Imported from China during the eighth century, the chrysanthemum has long served as the official flower of Japan. The Japanese monarchy is known as the Chrysanthemum Throne, and the exquisite blossom is widely revered as a symbol of longevity, dignity, and nobility.

This volume, reproduced from a rare and expensive publication, features more than 120 color woodblock images of the lovely perennials. Those with an interest in Japanese art and floral design will find it a rich archive of royalty-free illustrations as well as an abundant source of inspiration.
