In the Japanese Garden
Fulcrum Pub., 1991 - Gardening - 107 pages
Bibb traces the Japanese garden from its ancient beginnings--when the early Japanese spread white sand in the forest groves to invite the kame, or spirits, to bring good fortune--to the modern-day garden, where no view is accidental, yet each is in harmony with the landscape. 73 full-color photographs.
