Product Description

From Library Journal

The author of Bonsai : The Art of Growing and Keeping Miniature Trees (Chartwell, 1985) takes a slightly different approach in this book. He stresses aesthetic principles, discussing in greater detail differences between Japanese- and Chinese-style bonsai. Chan does not include encyclopedia descriptions of different bonsai stock but does cover Suiseki, the art of viewing stones. He describes the technique of air layering more clearly here, but treats other horticultural principles and general advice on where to find bonsai stock adequately in both books. Libraries owning the first book can safely pass. Others needing a good general introduction should purchase. Peter C. Leonard, Carnegie Lib. of Pittsburgh

5.0 out of 5 stars Mr. Myagi's Favorite Revisited April 2 2011
By Carmen Scuderi - Published on Amazon.com

This is a wonderful book on the art of Bonsai, Dr. Chan has done an excellent service in simplifying the mystery of Bonsai so the trepidacious novice can have the courage to attempt and succeed!! Well written, with beautiful pictoral examples of each step and design, Bonsai Masterclass is a masterpiece of information and design that any aficionado of the art of Bonsai should have in their Library. Having worked with Bonsai for more than 30 years now I can say in all candor Dr. Chan's text has made some of the more difficult procedures for bending and wiring much easier to accomplish. Thank you, Dr. Chan for a wonderful text, eminently readable from novice to skilled master! Domo Origato!
