Bonsai by Peter Warren

Published on the 1st July 2014 by DK who approached Peter in the summer of 2013 to update their previous title, the comprehensive and well loved book by the late Harry Tomlinson. To follow in such footsteps was an honour and a privilege.

It is primarily an entry level book to inspire and educate those taking their first steps in the bonsai world although there is plenty of information for more advanced enthusiasts. Available from all good bookshops and directly from Saruyama Bonsai.

Contents include an intoduction to bonsai, species guides and twenty step by step projects as inspiration. With superb photography by Will Heap and a modern design throughout, it has been very well received.  You can purchase it from me, or from DK directly.

Most books on bonsai in the English language have been written by authors that have had little or no formal training in the art. Finally a book by someone who knows what he talking about. Although this book is aimed at people new to bonsai, it also has enough in it to interest a seasoned bonsai grower…
