Japan's delicate, miniature bonsai are instantly recognizable and enjoyed by people the world over. But true understanding of bonsai, and the ability to master the art of displaying them so that their beauty is maximized, takes dedication and time. The Beauty of Bonsai teaches readers to fully appreciate the essence and aesthetics of these amazing trees. This is not a practical, how-to gardening guide. Rather, the book concentrates on heightening our awareness of what we see and feel when we view bonsai.

The first chapter opens with an in-depth discussion of bonsai, likening them to landscape painting, and explaining the role of perspective in creating the most pleasing arrangements. The second chapter focuses on two traditional composite displays, known as tokonoma and machiai, and imparts valuable tips to the reader on how best to achieve these classic formations. Chapter Three explores themes of bonsai settings, and gives advice on displays based on a particular chosen theme (for example, a mountain or a forest). The bonsai are adorned with ornaments and displayed in pots designed by famous artisans. In Chapter Four, renowned bonsai creator Masahiko Kimura demonstrates the process of creating a professional bonsai display. Accompanied by many photographs, the text outlines the artist's creative process, offering readers unique insights.
