It's all about the design of these tiny and magnificent specimens. The result of years of dedication to an ancient craft, this fascinating volume offers inspiration, encouragement, and practical advice. The author profiles 15 of his own bonsai creations--elms, junipers, pines, and larch--in fascinating narrative and glorious full-color photographs taken over a period of many years. As you enjoy the stories of how each bonsai was shaped, you'll obtain valuable advice on design, pruning, and bonsai care, and you will learn from the lessons of the many mistakes made along the way. Beginners to the art of bonsai will be delighted to see how even the most bizarre first attempts can eventually become exquisite bonsai. Those with more experience will find new ideas and perhaps even the motivation to explore the art form's creative potential in greater depth.
