Coussin's guide forms a lovely and thorough introduction to the ancient art of bonsai.

The book "Bonsai School was in my mailbox two days ago. The best thing I can say about the book is that after just a couple of pages I started saying to myself, "

I didn't know that". After 23 years of bonsai it was great to see a book that was teaching me new things page after page. The book is a beautiful book.

It is the first book that I believe that I could use "as is" as a text book to teach a very complete course on bonsai. I'm not certain how you will produce a "College of Bonsai" but I want a copy as soon as it's off the press. It is going to be a very successful book with a long shelf life at the stores."

Italian Bonsai artist, Patrizia Capellaro, for example, explains how to style a large juniper bonsai, while American Lit Van Phan analyzes how the miniature landscape style Hon
Non Bo reflects the larger landscapes of Viet Nam This is an excellent manual for anyone eager to try his or her hand at a hobby that just might offer "a lifelong path to enlightenment," as Coussins suggests.

  1. Layering is a reproduction technique that is frequently used in Japan for creating bonsai from relatively large trunks or branches. The technique is not often used in Western countries, because the methods commonly practiced have a tendency to produce serious design faults The authors of this article present a new layering method that assures good rootage and a smooth transition from the new roots to the lower part of the trunk and at the same time caused new roots to be produced from the layered trunk or branch mor rapidly.
