Belying the association of bonsai with Japan, the art originated in China. Liang, who has taught (Seattle Pacific U.) and lectured in the US, has pursued bonsai for 20 years and here presents a dazzling gallery of her own (huge) collection with extensive comment upon the art, its history, styles, and the cultivation and training of specimens. Hundreds of photos, drawings and paintings support the text. No bibliography. A lovely, utilitarian book. Annotation copyright Book News, Inc. Portland, Or.
