      The Japanese Gardens by Günter Nitschke has inspired me very much, with its gorgeous imagery. As a painter, the book has been of much help and inspiration.

      Ce live se consacre à l’histoire des jardins japonais des origines jusqu’à nos jours, notons que les jardins japonais actuels ne sont traités que dans une petite partie faisant office de conclusion. On découvre les principes qui parcourent ces jardins tels que la géomancie, l’influence chinoise ou encore l’alliance de l’angle droit architectural et des formes de la nature.

      Uninteresting, boring, very confusing when it comes to historical facts and divisions, hard to follow, it just jumps from one thing to another, instead of following some kind of a linear path. Beautiful pictures, though.

    4. Steve Woods

      This is a comprehensive book providing an historical account of the development of Japanese Garden design. It's a classic, beautifully illustrated and well researched

      Not the best pictures of the jgbooks I've sampled but adequate, and interesting, well-organized historical information.
