New Book Review – The Little Book of Bonsai: An Easy Guide to Caring for Your Bonsai Tree, by George Haas. Golden Statements, Winter 2020.
Praise for The Little Book of Bonsai
“We have waited a long time for a concise introductory bonsai book written by an expert, and we finally have it. Dupuich’s book has the earmarks of a classic.”
—Michael Hagedorn, author of Post-Dated: The Schooling of an Irreverent Bonsai Monk
“This well written and beautifully illustrated book covers bonsai care along with authoritative information for creating your own bonsai. Highly recommended for beginners.”
—William N. Valavanis, publisher of International Bonsai magazine and founder of the U.S. National Bonsai Exhibition
“Without the proper guidance and understanding, bonsai can be challenging. The Little Book of Bonsai helps you develop your vision, see nature at its best, and re-create it in a smaller size. With Dupuich as your guide, your bonsai journey can begin!”
—Kathy Shaner, curator of the Bonsai Garden at Lake Merritt in Oakland, California
“Dupuich has the best bonsai blog online, so it’s not surprising that The Little Book of Bonsai is the best book for new bonsai enthusiasts.”
—Boon Manakitivipart, award-winning bonsai artist and teacher
“This book is a great guide for making bonsai basics easier…Marvelously written and photographed…I believe it would serve as an excellent text supplement for any beginner’s class or workshop.”
—George Haas, editor, Golden Statements
Though it’s geared to beginners, it’s not dumbed down at all, and the photos are real bonsai anyone would be proud to own…rather than the little sticks you sometimes see pictured in beginning bonsai books. Jonas, who knows as much about bonsai from seed to specimen as almost anyone, is without a doubt the right person for the job.
