More About the Author

Harry Harrington was born in Oxford, UK in 1970 and after 20 years in and around Manchester now lives near the Chiltern Hills in Aylesbury.
Harry started bonsai as a hobby nearly 20 years ago whilst working as a gardener. Harry started working professionally as a bonsai artist and writer in 2000.
His website www.bonsai4me.com started life as a collection of private notes about bonsai that were published as 'Species Guides' in 2001; the first comprehensive study of plant species suitable for bonsai available online. Since that time Bonsai4me has grown on an annual basis and now attracts over 1.5million different visitors each year from around the world.
The success and popularity of the 'Progression Series' (articles and photo-series showing the development of a bonsai over many years) at Bonsai4me.com has led to Harry writing and publishing 3 books on the subject via B4MePublishing; Bonsai Inspirations 1 originally published in 2011, Bonsai Inspirations 2 published in 2012 and an updated version of Bonsai Inspirations 1 (2nd Edition) in 2014. Copies of these titles have been distributed to nearly 40 countries around the world.
Harry's first book based on Bonsai4me.com itself , 'Bonsai Basics: The Foundations of Bonsai' was originally released as an e-book only in February 2013, but was then published in paperback on March 20th 2015.

Harry continues to write for bonsai4me.com and further books are planned for the future. He teaches and runs workshops in the area around London and is frequently commissioned to undertake styling work on client's trees. Harry specializes in turning poor quality material into works of art and enjoys the challenge of styling 'unsuitable' material for bonsai.
Harry rarely shows his trees to the public, preferring to keep a relatively low-profile within the standard Club and Show circuits.

I just bought the Kindle version of Harry Harrington's "Bonsai Inspirations 2" ($10 US). I haven't bought a digital version of a bonsai book before, but I'm pleased. I can enlarge the photos and get a good look. It's a great book if you're like me, an advanced beginner, and you need more than the typical "how to" book. Haven't read all of it yet but it is rich in detail (both text and photographs). The only complaint that I have about the digital version is that it isn't conducive to browsing the photos. But I liked the fact that I paid my money and I was reading it minutes later.

Harry, the way you explain the process of creating a bonsai makes it easy to understand and to follow. All the tips supported by your experience, photos and drawings are extremely helpful. A book every Bonsai enthusiast should read.
