Product description


"It's a beautifully photographed book the bonsai pictures are clear, the text is well written and the story is riveting." Adam's Art and Bonsai Blog"

"This book would be a good coffee-table piece, a great addition for anyone interested in bonsai trees or plant history, or a souvenir from the National Arboretum." --Washington Gardener magazine

"It's a beautifully photographed book...the bonsai pictures are clear, the text is well written...and the story is riveting." --Adam's Art and Bonsai Blog

"There is plenty of history for those who are interested. Of course, at the heart of the book are the exquisite photographs of these living masterworks, as well as a behind-the-scenes look at the Washington museum that makes them accessible to visitors from around the world." --Retailing Insight magazine

"I think it is fair to say that all of the books I have that have been published by Tuttle are of excellent quality. However, just occasionally one finds one that is so good it 'fair takes one's breath away: this book, I'm delighted to report, is one of those...the illustrations are excellent. That said, although they are some of the best I have seen, they have to take second place to the text u which is superb." --Shakkei, the Journal of the Japanese Garden Society

"The book gives a unique perspective among the bonsai books I've reviewed and encountered over time, in that it's specifically about the national collection in DC. There's fascinating insight into the diplomacy behind bonsai gifting and exchange, and the deep traditional symbolism involved." --boZannical Gardens blog

About the Author

Ann McClellan is delighted to add "Bonsai & Penjing, Ambassadors of Beauty and Peace, the National Bonsai & Penjing Museum" to her previously published books about the flowering cherry trees of Washington, D.C.: "Cherry Blossoms" and "The Cherry Blossom Festival, Sakura Celebration." All three books reflect the lifelong love of trees that she developed while growing up in New Jersey on an arboretum-like campus laid out by Frederick Law Olmsted. Her professional career has included executive positions at non-profit organizations, such as the Smithsonian Institution, World Wildlife Fund, and the American Association of Museums. She treasures the living collections of the National Museum of Bonsai & Penjing as profound expressions of the best that people together with nature can create.
