The Sakuteiki, literally "Notes on Garden Design", by the 11th century poet and courtier Tachibana no Toshitsuna, laid out the principles that shaped the design of Japanese gardens and elevated them to sacred spaces. It remains a vital influence for Japanese garden designers today. Infinite Spaces pairs extracts from the Sakuteiki with captivating garden photographs that beautifully illustrate the principles of this ancient work. A superb gift book. Full color throughout.
