Wonderful book on Ikebana Jun 1, 2008
What a great book! Shozo Sato has rewritten, remodeled, and recreated his amazing book from the 60's on Ikebana! Such a new, fresh, and updated take on his still-popular masterpiece on Japanese floral design. As a member of the Ikenobo school, this book is not only informative but also pictoresque of this long appreciated Japanese art. And, had the pleasure of meeting in person, Mr. Shozo Sato, and had him sign this soon to be collected piece. I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves floral design with an artistic and Asian flavor.
Wonderful series!! Jan 12, 2008
I love this series of books for my classroom. They've been wonderful for me to read and review and also for my students to read. The illustrations are great, the information is comprehensive and at a child's level, making it great for adults who don't know anything about it to pick up.
