The Japanese stone garden is an art form recognized around the globe. These gardens provide tranquil settings where visitors can shed the burdens and stresses of modern existence, satisfy an age-old yearning for solitude and repose, and experience the restorative power of art and nature. For this reason the value of the Japanese stone garden today is arguably even greater than when many of them were created.Japanese Stone Gardens provides a comprehensive introduction to the powerful mystique and dynamism of the Japanese stone garden—from their earliest use as props in animistic rituals, to their appropriation by Zen monks and priests to create settings conducive to contemplation and finally to their contemporary uses and meaning. With insightful text and abundant imagery, this book reveals the hidden order of stone gardens and in the process heightens the enthusiast's appreciation of them.

More than just a garden

Stephen Mansfield unlocks the significance and reveals the beauty of the Japanese stone garden. Through the stunning photographic illustrations of some of the most interesting gardens in Japan, we learn the religious significance of the stones and the meanings behind the different arrangements. I like how Mansfield's book is not just a reflective look at the historic stone garden, but also on its survival of modernity and the new materials and techniques that are now embraced.
