Interestiing and fun book

Post  JimLewis on Fri Jun 21, 2013 9:36 pm

One of my acquisitions at Bill V's 50th Anniversary get-together was this little book (99.5% in Japanese) on Mame bonsai.  I'm told the title translates to:  "The Chi of Mame Bonsai" but someone here might be able to say Yea or Nay.  It has 128 pages and is quarto size. 

For those of us who love the tiny trees, the book is a delight.  For educational purposes only here are some example scans:

But what sold the book to me were several pages of:



WHY can't we find pots like these over here?!!!!

Lovely book, Jim. I suspect that highly decorated pots for Mame are an entirely legitimate but acquired taste. The market is minimal, so we don't get them, or if we do they are at extreme prices.

So Jim,

should I just copy a pot and send you one as a gift?

Aren't Mame' great, I have the Matsudaira one and look through often.
Thanks for the look.
