Story

This stunning volume is an in-depth exploration of over 800 years of the art, essence, and enduring impact of the Japanese garden. Author and garden designer Sophie Walker explores these spaces in detail through a series of essays and 100 featured gardens, ranging from ancient Shinto shrines to imperial gardens to contemporary Zen designs. The twelve illustrated chapters expose readers to the ways in which Japanese gardens reflect and engage with religion, history, philosophy, culture, and ethics, and challenge our notions of an object’s essence: how can a rock become a mountain, or a single garden encompass the world? Detailed glossaries add depth to this must-have and wonderfully comprehensive book for any lover of design, gardening, or Japan.
