The Japanese garden is a place apart, designed to bring a sense of calm and serenity to the observer. It is a spiritual refuge, encouraging reflection and meditation. It is a world of natural delights perfect in their imperfection, away form the bustle of the outside world.
For centuries, Japanese artists have honored that simple beauty in prints, paintings, and books. In a Japanese Garden Coloring Book recreates 23 artworks for you to color -- images of flowers and trees, garden residents such as the bird and the butterfly, and the in-the-moment scenes of people taking in the pleasures of these peaceful corners of the world.
A copy of the original print sits opposite your "canvas" as reference, if you wish to imitate the original work of art. Reflections from Lafcadio Hearn's "In a Japanese Garden" as well as some works of the great haiku masters will inspire you are you apply pencils or fine markers to your page. When your masterpiece is complete, tear it out at the perforation to fame and display.
