Good penjing book
Over the years I have seen a few books on penjing. They had my curiosity, but this book got my attention. I didn’t expect to find it in a souvenir shop of the Humble Administrator’s Garden in Suzhou, but it was the most appropriate place to find it. After turning a few pages I knew that this book is for me. It features studio quality photos of 312 penjing (single trees, forests, rocks and shohin stand displays). All of them are of exceptional quality. The fact that it is all in Chinese doesn’t hinder my appreciation of it. I have gone through this book a couple of times and feel like doing it again and again.
