Detailed Product Description
Chicago, 2000 [1989], 1st USA edition. 166 pp, 37 b/w photos. The Japanese dry landscape garden has long attractedand long baffledviewers from the West. While museums across the United States are replicating these "Zen rock gardens" in their courtyards and miniature versions of the gardens are now office decorations, they remain enigmatic, their philosophical and aesthetic significance obscured. Reading Zen in the Rocks, the classic essay on the karesansui garden by French art historian Franois Berthier, has now been translated by Graham Parkes, giving English-speaking readers a concise, thorough, and beautifully illustrated. Smaller hardcover, DJ, new.
