Practical tips, photographs, and ninety-two self-contained lessons teach the art of Japanese flower arranging and the Oriental philosophy underlying it
This is a very formal book of training in ikebana, equal to many thousands of dollars of lessons with a master in Japan. It teaches attitude toward the materials, as well as methods of preserving them, techniques in arranging them, choices of containers, and equipment needed to produce the timeless simplicity of Japanese flower arrangements. In Japanese homes there's a special niche called a tokonoma, in which the flower arrangements express the beauty of the changing seasons. I've used this book as a jumping off point for many altar arrangements at a Los Angeles Zen Center and most recently bought a copy at Amazon for a flower afficionado friend. Even if you never make the exact arrangements in the book, you'll come away with a new appreciation of the age-old art of ikebana.

Contains step-by-step lessons so one can learn how to construct arrangements without a class or teacher on hand. I got this for my Dad since he loved my book so much. Has illustrations and layouts so you can see from the side and top to balance arrangements. Ikenobo is the original school of Ikebana and this book presents a short historical introduction of live flower arrangements for those who might be interested.

This has lessons! Easy to learn Ikebana on your own or with a friend. We take a class from a wonderful instructor, and we use the book to practice between lessons. Very great book! If you want to learn Ikebana, this is a must have!

Little Devil
I took an Ikebana class over 20 years ago and somehow the text book disappeared. So,I resorted to Amazon to replace it and there it was! This is a really nice book on the art of Ikebana and I am glad to have the replacement copy.

Awesome book. Gives variations of arrangement, making it easy to learn placement with diagrams along with which seasonal flowers were used for example. Emphasis on basic techniques makes the book even more relevant. A must have for anyone learning or interested in Ikebana.

full color and lots of details on how to ... its amazing and colorful and well written. Great advice on creating.

good condition

Perfect for someone practicing Ikebana. And the price was perfect. Someone in my class had a hard covered book and I was pleased to find a soft covered book.
