About this book

Most books on bonsai cover matters such as history, cultivating techniques, designing and training principles, general care and maintenance and propagation techniques. Very few books are available on designing and styling bonsai. However, it is essential that the bonsai enthusiast should master these challenging techniques in order to train plant material into quality bonsai.

Practical Guide to Bonsai Styles of the World is a comprehensive guide to more than forty bonsai styles, covering the traditional Japanese and Chinese styles as well as six unique African styles. Each style is illustrated and discussed in detail, with line drawings and photographs showing the characteristics and variations of the style, suggestions for plants suited to each individual style and for the most appropriate containers.

Now in its third edition, Practical Guide to Bonsai Styles of the World has been completely updated with additional information and full-colour photographs throughout, and a user-friendly design and colour-coding that makes the book easy to use.
