The Art of Setting Stones: & Other Writings from the Japanese Garden

by

The Art of Setting Stones: & Other Writings from the Japanese Garden Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In Japanese gardens, composition follows from placement of the first stone; all elements and plantings become interconnected. These eight essays on Kyoto gardens similarly begin with keen description and build into richly meditative excursions into art, Buddhism, nature, and science. Landscape architect Marc Keane shows how Japanese gardens are both a microcosm of the natural universe and a clear expression of our humanity, mirroring how we think, worship, and organize our lives and communities. Filled with passages of alluring beauty, this is a truly transcendent book about "experiencing" Japanese design. Marc Peter Keanehas lived in Kyoto for 17 years and is author of Japanese Garden Design. He designs residential, company, and temple gardens.
