Product Description


Edoardo Rossi got into bonsai in 1985 and studied with several Masters within and outside of Japan. He became interested in many aspects of Japanese culture, like calligraphy and suiseki. All aspects and elements of the display are covered by Edoardo: Suiseki, accent plants, tables and jita, scrolls and tenpai. The book was commissioned by Kunio Kobayashi who asked Edoardo to write an extensive book on this subject. With the help of no lesser notables than Tomio Yamada, Susumu Sudo and of Kunio Kobayashi, the project began in 2010. Then in 2015, after their approval, 'Kazari' was finally published.
