Synopsis

Bonsai with Japanese Maples by Peter D. Adams

With their delicate foliage, seasonal color changes, and intricate pattern of branching, Japanese maples are among the most popular and suitable plants for bonsai design. In this long-awaited book, internationally renowned expert Peter Adams discusses both the specific horticultural needs of Japanese maples as bonsai subjects and illustrates proven techniques for creating and maintaining beautiful specimens. Although aimed at an audience that has some familiarity with bonsai techniques, the book deliberately shows a mix of bonsai at different stages in their training, so that less experienced enthusiasts can gain new ideas and inspiration from trees that are works in progress. Much more than a mere how-to book, Bonsai with Japanese Maples is a forthright attempt to look at bonsai as art objects and to critique and assess them from an artist's perspective.

Reviews

Japanese maple and bonsai lovers cannot afford to miss this new book. ... The inspiration you'll feel after browsing the illustrations alone are well worth the ... price. -- Pat Hayward Garden Railways 20070401
