Featuring elegant designs, In a Japanese Garden Coloring Book is the perfect stress-reliever for fans of classical Japanese art and literature. For centuries, Japanese artists have honored simple beauty in prints, paintings and books. This adult coloring book recreates 23 artworks for you to color--images of flowers and trees, garden residents such as the bird and the butterfly, and in-the-moment scenes of people taking in the pleasures of these peaceful corners of the world. A copy of the original print sits opposite your coloring "canvas" as a reference. Reflections from Lafcadio Hearn's In a Japanese Garden as well some works of the great haiku masters will inspire you as you apply pencils or fine markers to your page. When your masterpiece is complete, tear it out at the perforation to frame and display.
