Description from Everyday Needs

An in-depth exploration spanning 800 years of the art, essence, and enduring impact of the Japanese garden. The most comprehensive exploration of the art of the Japanese garden published to date, this book covers more than eight centuries of the history of this important genre. Author and garden designer Sophie Walker brings fresh insight to a treasured subject, exploring the Japanese garden in detail through a series of essays and beautiful photography featuring 100 featured gardens; ranging from ancient Shinto shrines to imperial gardens and contemporary Zen designs. Leading artists, architects, and cultural practitioners – including John Pawson, Tadao Ando and Anish Kapoor – offer personal perspectives in newly commissioned writings. Includes a glossary of Japanese plants. Hardcover. 305 pages.

In 2014 Sophie Walker became the youngest woman to design a garden at RHS Chelsea Flower Show. Having studied art history, Sophie later qualified in horticulture, plant science, and garden design. Based in London, she practises globally. In addition to designing gardens, Sophie lectures on conceptual design, the Japanese garden, planting, and the garden environment.
