Synopsis

Bonsai, an ancient tradition with its origins in China, was developed as a fine art form in Japan. It is a fascinating `living art' that captures the beauty and strength of trees and shrubs in miniature. The ancient art of creating perfectly formed miniature trees is clearly explained in this practical book. An expert introduction describes the best trees and shrubs to use and the importance of bonsai size, proportion and aesthetics. The art of displaying your bonsai is also examined, with advice on pots and containers, accessories and stands. Practical guidance is given on basic bonsai techniques, such as defoliating and wiring, and special how-to sequences show how to design 15 classic bonsai shapes from formal and informal upright to slanting and windswept. An invaluable visual directory of over 40 of the most suitable bonsai plants, as well as advice on seasonal care and maintenance, completes this stunning manual. Written by one of the foremost bonsai specialists, the book features both portraits of excellent bonsai specimens and practical step-by-step sequences.
