This excellent little book is an eye-opening and rich explanation of Japanese gardens, with special emphasis on their delightful dry landscapes of stone, gravel and rocks. Anyone with a modest curiosity about this type of landscaping, which has invaded interiors in miniature, will find much here to explain the history and philosophy of these highly meditative spaces.
