Centuries of flower arrangement wisdom are boiled down into exquisite calligraphic representations in this excellent art book. Each image presents a perfect arrangement, delicately balanced within an imaginary frame, yet asymmetrically poised for drama. These line drawings are perfect for adaptation to art projects in want of Asian flair. From the flowers and foliage to the individual pots and containers represented, each is a wonderful study. As a whole, they are a great body of work ready for adaptation to textile, print, porcelain, or any other imaginative medium. Traditional Chinese characters accompany each, explaining the arrangement, or simply presenting snippets of poetry. These too can be extracted for use in art projects and borders.
