From the cover: “Ikebana, the art of Japanese Flower Arrangement is more than just a decorative art or home-making skill, it is also a spiritual discipline. Moribana, shallow container arrangement, Nageire, informal arrangement in a tall container and the classic Seika style are illustrated in step by step sequences, and variations described on these basic styles. Historical background and the philosophy behind Ikebana are covered, basic principles are clearly illustrated, and advice is given on the treatment of plant material to prolong the life of arrangements. An appendix of diagrams showing the main lines of variation on basic styles is given, and both colour and half-tone photographs enhance the text.”
