Penjing: The Chinese Art of Bonsai

Foreword by: Rob Kempinski / Photographs by: Huang Le and Han Xuenian
The bonsai tree has become a near-ubiquitous aspect of Japanese art. Less recognized, penjing is a traditional Chinese art which encompasses bonsai and expands upon it. This lovely book showcases the Chinese art of penjing in all its aspects and covers all three categories, tree penjing, rock penjing, and water-and-land penjing. A feast for the eyes, Penjing: The Chinese Art of Bonsai provides a wealth of information for the academically inclined as well as the practically minded.
