Product info

Explore the poetic beauty of Japan’s garden styles in The Japanese Garden. From author and garden designer Sophie Walker, this stunning volume offers a comprehensive look at over eight centuries of this important practice. Inside, you’ll find page after page of gorgeous color and black and white photographs that feature everything from ancient Shinto shrines to neat Imperial gardens to modern zen outdoor spaces. Each image is paired with a concise yet illuminating caption, which offers insight on its designer, location, style and the date it was created. Walker has interspersed these stunning shots with brief texts, which explore the rich history of almost fifteen hundred years of Japanese garden-making and the many ways it has woven into the country’s culture, from religion and philosophy to ethics and abstract thought. You’ll also find brief essays from a host of gardeners, designers, artists, architects and zen practitioners, as well as an illustrated glossary of plants that are rare to Japan. Perfect for any aspiring horticulturist, this book will offer endless inspiration to anyone with a love for art and design.
