    Comprehensive coverage for beginners to experts This text was the one i’d been searching for so long. I’ve purchased a dozen bonsai books over the years and finally found Koreshoff’s book. It’s straight foreward, simple, and explains so many things i’d been confused about that other bonsai books don’t touch on like the philosophical purpose of the shapes of trees. Bottom line is this: you can get many bonsai books and get close to what Koreshoff has done, or you can purchase hers and be done. You won’t regret it.

    A compendium of practical and innovative bonsai techniques. With few color photographs but many excellent line drawings and lucid writing, the author covers all the essentials. The techniques presented are both practical and innovative. The chapters on shaping, soil, and styling are exceptional. Only Naka’s two volume set rivals this publication.
