The Japanese Tea Garden Book Description:

In this richly illustrated volume, designer Marc Peter Keane looks at how social, religious, aesthetic, and philosophical influences combined over hundreds of years to produce one of the world's most transcendent forms of landscape art. The Japanese tea garden today is immediately recognizable for its elegant gates, stepping stones, lanterns, water basins, mossy ground, and other elements in a setting resembling a forest path. Yet in its purest form, the purpose of this path, or roji, is to transport the visitor from the everyday world to the rarefied realm of the tea ceremony, chanoyu. The tea garden is thus a physical as well as a spiritual space, and its powerful cultural role has led its design and materials to influence every other form of garden art in Japan.

The Tea Garden Book Description:

A Japanese tea garden is a place for quiet reflection on the beauty of nature and the art of living in harmony. Tea gardens were historically designed as peaceful, natural spaces to detach oneself from the hectic everyday world before entering the tea house and the tranquil world of tea ceremony. The tea garden is appropriately more rustic than most other garden styles. The pathway through the gardens represents a journey so integral to the Japanese tea ceremony that the word roji has become synonymous with tea gardens themselves.

A Tea Garden in Tivoli Book Description:

A Tea Garden in Tivoli: American Garden Design Inspired by the Way of Tea is a guide to garden design and flower arranging woven around the story of a unique garden in the Hudson Valley of New York. "Great gardens in small spaces" is the theme. Gardens need not be Versailles-sized to be inspiring. This is an intriguing and accessible introduction to the Japanese garden aesthetic for the backyard gardener by veteran Zen and Tea student Bettina Mueller. Drawing from her decades long study of the Japanese Tea tradition where great - even legendary - gardens are small by necessity, Bettina sets out to turn her 1/8 acre backyard in the small Hudson Valley village of Tivoli, New York into a private world of beauty and tranquility. Limited edition.
