The book by Sato is the book as a primer for learning and practicing Ikebana. Beautifully written and illustrated it's easy to understand and relate to Japanese flower arranging as a true art form. This book will help anyone with a lifetime of meaningful learning and enjoyment through what could otherwise be an unfamiliar journey haphazardly taken by those without the insight and careful guidance offered by Mr. Sato. A real treasure.
I am a fortunate owner of a copy of this book.The book, itself, is a work of art created with great care and craftsmanship.It does great justice to the subject matter.If you are an admirer of Ikebana or if you are a Japanophile, this book would be a fine addition to your library.
This is a complete guide to flower arranging and lives up to that claim. Well illustrated and filled with examples and how to diagrams it provides a useable handbook to the art of arranging flowers. Highly recommended!
Fabulous book, with actual photographs in a cloth covered hard bound edition. They don't make these wonderful kind of books any more, especially by such a great author. A must for anyone who appreciates Japanese Ikebana or flower arrangement in general.
I came across this book in a used book store for $35, and bought it immediately. I could not imagine being a student of floral design without it!Later, when I began teaching, I used it in my contemporary floral design class for a three class segment on Ikebana. So much of contemporary design incorportates the principles of Ikebana that I felt it essential for developing an understanding of asymetric balance, negative space, and the concept of less is more. This book covers the traditional schools, and forms, including classic techniques for creating supportive, but invisible, armatures.It is an authoritative source for traditional Ikebana designs and techniques. I highly recommend it!
This beautiful book was a great surprise.Information is excellent as are illustrations.The book is on reserve in our local library and now I have my own copy.Many thanks. B. Morgan
This beautiful book with it's many photographs is the ultimate guide to Ikebana. It is quite large and heavy but so worth buying.
I had my doubts about the very large book and condition, but when it came I was taken by surprise by the excellant condition and look of the book. I will order again and again from the seller.
