Nothing brings a touch of artistry to the garden like ornamental pruning, and a series of deliberate cuts can create landscapes and evoke faraway places. All that's needed to recreate the effect in the garden are a sharp pair of pruners, some imagination, and the instruction found in The Art of Creative Pruning. Drawing on both eastern and western styles, author Jake Hobson moves beyond the traditional lollipops and animals and teaches a wholly new approach to ornamental pruning that appeals to modern sensibilities. Picture boxwoods trimmed into whimsical Russian nesting dolls, hedges inscribed with words, and a tree snipped to resemble the toppling tiers of a wedding cake. These are just a few of the unusual ideas featured in the beautifully photographed pages. All the practical considerations are here as well, including pruning to improve a view, remedial pruning to fix problems, and pruning fruit trees to increase yield.

Over the years, Japanese gardeners have fine-tuned a distinctive set of pruning techniques that coax out the essential characters of their garden trees, or niwaki. In this highly practical book, Western gardeners are encouraged to draw upon the techniques and sculpt their own garden trees to unique effect. After first discussing the principles that underpin the techniques, the author offers in-depth guidelines for shaping pines, azaleas, conifers, broadleaved evergreens, bamboos and deciduous trees. Throughout the text, step-by-step illustrations accompany the instructions, while abundant photographs and anecdotes bring the ideas surrounding niwaki vividly to life.

**Winner of the 2006 American Horticultural Society Book Award** The Art of the Japanese Garden is the only historical overview of Japanese gardens that covers Japanese gardening culture in one beautiful book. Japanese gardens are rooted in two traditions: an indigenous prehistoric tradition in which patches of graveled forest or pebbled beach were dedicated to nature spirits, and a tradition from China and Korea that included elements such as ponds, streams, waterfalls, rock compositions and a variety of vegetation. The Art of the Japanese Garden traces the development and blending of these two traditions, as well as the inclusion of new features as gardening reached new heights of sophistication on Japanese soil. 300 full-color Japanese garden illustrations and photographs highlight notable gardens in Japan, including graveled courtyards, early aristocratic gardens, esoteric and paradise gardens, Zen gardens, warrior gardens, tea gardens and stroll gardens. Also included are sections on modern trends and Japanese gardens in other countries.

Landscape Gardening in Japan

Landscape Gardening in Japan was first published in 1893 by Josiah Conder, a British architect, urban planner, and teacher, who had come to Japan in 1877 to serve as a professor of architecture at the forerunner of Tokyo University and as a consultant to the Ministry of Engineering. A man of wide interests, Conder was encouraged by the warm reception given his 1891 Flowers of Japan and the Art of Floral Arrangement to undertake a book on gardening. In preparing the present book, he relied not entirely on his own observations but consulted, and "freely borrowed from," some of the most reliable Japanese sources available at the time, the oldest dating to 1633. The resulting book is the product of a Western, Victorian perspective with access to Japanese authoritative texts. Conder's study of the Japanese landscape garden led him to conclude that it represented universal qualities that could be applied to gardening anywhere. In addition to a discussion of these broader truths, the book is so finely detailed and so richly illustrated that it still serves today as a guide to modern garden-lovers, whether of a practical or a theoretical bent. The present volume combines the original study with an additional volume of photographs of famous gardens that was published shortly thereafter and entitled Supplement to Landscape Gardening in Japan. The interior of the book has been redesigned and the text newly set for easier reading and viewing. The book has a new Foreword by Azby Brown and an Afterword by Terunobu Fujimori, providing background information on Conder and putting his accomplishments into perspective. Jacket Illustration: Yokuon-en Zenzu (detail), National Diet Library. The Yokuon-en garden and villa was constructed by Matsudaira Sadanobu around 1794. (See Conder's description in Chapter 1 under Yoku-on-En.) The present illustration is a copy of an original bird's-eye view commemoratively painted in 1842 after the garden's destruction by fire in 1829.

Ce dictionnaire traite d'un champ organisé autour des notions complémentaires de logement et d'habitat. Il s'agit donc d'éléments essentiels de la vie quotidienne de chaque individu, mais aussi de l'activité de nombreuses professions. L'ouvrage explore, à travers quelque 350 entrées, un réseau cohérent de termes savants (espace de vie, ethnicité...), techniques (copropriété, HLM, permis de construire...) ou d'usage courant (quartier, bricolage, confort...). Une trentaine de " thèmes transversaux " (de l'analyse des Politiques du logement aux réflexions sur le sens du Décor domestique en passant par Les relations de voisinage) ouvrent des perspectives et font apparaître un point de vue d'auteur. Ce dictionnaire se veut avant tout critique. Ses auteurs, venus de disciplines, de milieux scientifiques, techniques et professionnels variés, ont parié sur le décloisonnement des savoirs et une réelle interdisciplinarité. De ce fait, l'ouvrage permet de franchir de nouvelles étapes dans l'appréhension des enjeux fondamentaux de questions majeures (la décentralisation, les nouvelles formes d'urbanisation, les politiques publiques, les marchés immobiliers, les rapports de l'habitant à son logement et à son environnement...). On trouvera ici, outre un outil de référence et de travail, l'élément qui faisait défaut pour clarifier et instruire le débat démocratique sur une thématique qui implique constamment, au quotidien comme dans la prospective, les citoyens et leurs représentants. Gageons que ce dictionnaire deviendra vite indispensable aux étudiants, aux enseignants, aux élus, aux professionnels, aux chercheurs ainsi qu'aux personnels des collectivités territoriales.
