Publisher Comments:

The true meaning of Ikebanaand#8212;the traditional Japanese art of flower arrangementand#8212;is to take a few beautiful flowers and plants and tastefully present them in very simple containers to enhance home decor. The 53 elegant arrangements featured in andlt;iandgt;Japanese Ikebana for Every Seasonandlt;/iandgt; are perfect for special occasionsand#8212;Mother's Day, Valentine's Day, birthday, anniversaryand#8212;or any event that calls for a flower bouquet.andlt;BRandgt;andlt;BRandgt;The key to good Ikebana arrangements is to understand a few very simple principlesand#8212;like the idea of andlt;iandgt;mitateandlt;/iandgt;, seeing old things with new eyesand#8212;and to learn a few easy techniques to stabilize and support plants inside a vase or container. Using common flowers and plants from the garden, a nearby field or forest, or the local florist, anyone can easily create these lovely Ikebana in just a few minutes.andlt;BRandgt;andlt;BRandgt;Authors Rie Imai and Yuji Ueno explain how to select flowers and containers from things that are already aroundand#8212;and then turn them into something special. The basic instructions in the book cover a wide range of styles that encourage readers to use their own creativity rather than copying traditional and highly technical Ikebana design concepts.andlt;BRandgt;andlt;BRandgt;No matter what time of year it is and regardless of your taste or budgetand#8212;the arrangements in this book will lend a touch of Japanese elegance to your home.
