The Garden Art of China by Lifang Chen, 1986

Reviewed by: Brian Thompson
Review date: 2007-04-01

For an immersion course in Chinese gardens, look to native landscape architect and historian Chen Lifang and "The Garden Art of China." Expertly translated by botanist Yu Sianglin, this is one of the richest introductions -- filled with plans, sketches, design principles, and many, many examples -- to any art form imaginable.

Excerpted from the Spring 2007 Arboretum Bulletin.
