Infinite Spaces: The Art and Wisdom of the Japanese Garden Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Japanese gardens have long been admired for their capacity to improve on nature through impeccable design, detail and composition, properties that elevate them from mere gardens to sacred spaces. Infinite Spaces is a remarkable reflection of the Japanese garden, drawing on extracts from the Sakuteiki-an eleventh-century text that distills centuries of garden design-and pairing them with inspiring images from Sadao Hibi, one of Japan's best-known photographers.

Praise for the hardcover edition:

"Pairs quotations from an ancient writing, the Sakuteiki, on garden design with exquisite photos that illuminate the words. This book should leave a gardener serene, refreshed and inspired-in other words, in the right frame of mind to contemplate another growing season."-Knight Ridder Newspapers

Synopsis:

A exquisite picture book enhanced with writings from the Sakuteiki, an eleventh-century text on garden design

About the Author
