Infinite Spaces: The Art and Wisdom of the Japanese Garden is a remarkable reflection on the gardens of Japan. The book combines the ancient wisdom of the Sakuteiki—an eleventh-century text that distills centuries of garden design—with inspiring images of Japanese gardens by Sadao Hibi, one of Japan's best-known photographers.
The result is a celebration of the Japanese garden as a sacred space of impeccable design, detail and composition. Introductory chapters cover the history and styles of Japanese gardens and give background to the Sakuteiki (Notes on Garden Design). Infinite Spaces allows gardeners from all walks of life to appreciate the art and wisdom of the Japanese garden.
