Название: Bouquets with Personality Автор: Lucinda Rooney Издательство: Stewart, Tabori & Chang Год: 2021 Формат: EPUB Размер: 58 Мб Язык: английский / English
Some flowers are team players, content to let their gently expressive hues and textures take a supporting role in an arrangement or bouquet. Others have a domineering, outgoing nature and always insist on being the center of attention. Recognizing flowers’ differing personalities—and blending the meek and the bold together in unusual, romantic, and harmonious ways—is at the heart of Lucinda Rooney’s floral philosophy. In Bouquets with Personality, Rooney divulges her secrets: the materials and tools she’s most fond of using, her design influences, her theory of color, and, most important, her insightful “psychology” of the botanical realm. It’s that in-depth understanding of how flowers and plants convey emotion that makes this book such an informative and inspirational resource for beginning flower-arrangers, seasoned professionals, and anyone who just loves flowers. The pages are graced, throughout, by Mick Hales’ lovely photos of both individual flowers and completed bouquets.
Название: Literati Style Penjing: Chinese Bonsai Masterworks Автор: Zhao Qingquan Издательство: Shanghai Press Год: 2015 Формат: EPUB Размер: 32 Мб Язык: английский / English
The art of bonsai is widely known in the West: from the Karate Kid to the American Bonsai Association and even local grocery stores, bonsai has become a common sight in the States. But bonsai, the Japanese art of creating miniature trees, actually originated in China, where it's called penjing. Penjing, meaning "tray scenery," is a traditional Chinese art of creating miniature potted landscapes including trees and other plants. Brought from China to Japan in ancient times before spreading to the West, bonsai/penjing is now popular throughout the world. In China, the art of creating miniature landscapes has evolved in several different ways. Literati Style Penjing: Chinese Bonsai Masterworks focuses on a special category of penjing associated with traditional Chinese culture, such as the painting of the literati, or elite scholar-bureaucrats, of imperial China. Like literati ink paintings, this style of penjing has a subtle elegance distinguished by a lone, lean trunk with sparse foliage exhibiting distinct lines and simplicity.
Название: Penjing: The Chinese Art of Bonsai: A Pictorial Exploration of Its History, Aesthetics, Styles and Preservation Автор: Zhao Qingquan Издательство: Shanghai Press Год: 2012 Формат: EPUB Размер: 32 Мб Язык: английский / English
With hundreds of color photographs and illustrations, this Chinese gardening book is a wonderful introduction to penjing—China's treasured bonsai art. Although most people thing bonsai is a Japanese invention, the art originated in ancient China where it is called penjing. The two Chinese characters for penjing ("pot" and "landscape") capture the essence of this art: sculpting microcosms of the beauty of the natural world from plants, rocks, soil, and water, both as an artistic process and as horticultural cultivation. Both penjing and bonsai are art forms that express the beauty of nature. In China, bonsai, as a part of penjing, is often called "tree penjing," or "tree in a pot." The Chinese divide penjing into three categories: tree penjing, rock penjing, and water-and-land penjing.
