[Review] Stone arrangement in the Japanese garden

Stone arrangement in Japanese gardens
You may already know our newest book about the arrangement of stones found in Japanese gardens.
This book was voluntarily proofread by locksleyu of Selftaughtjapanese.com.

However, he did not only the proofreading, he also wrote a review of this book, which I would like to share with you today!

The book is titled “Stone arrangement in the Japanese garden” and goes into detail about various rock formations used in traditional Japanese gardens, including some historical notes as well as suggestions for rock placement in your own garden. While it is only 12 pages, it is packed with over 40 photographs and hand-drawn illustrations to help explain the various formations. They’ve managed to squeeze a great deal of content into a handful of pages.
The best thing about this book is that most of its content is pretty technical (it’s part of their series on Elements & Explanations), information you are not likely to find doing random web researches about Japanese gardens, at least not in English. If you are serious about learning about rock formations typically employed in Japanese gardens, it’s a valuable resource. On the other hand, if you are just looking to get an introduction to Japanese rock gardens, you may want to look elsewhere. This book also has some interesting historical information in it (including some content taken from a classic ‘manual of gardening’), and some references to famous Japanese gardens with photographs of some of them.

The review is very detailed and quite long. Please read the whole text here:
