No 411/1755

Post  Guest on Thu Dec 08, 2011 9:29 am

Behind this not so exiting headline hides a wonderful book, The Collectors Island No 1. The book is printed by “Fondazione Cologni Dei Mestieri DÁrte”, an Italian foundation of arts started by a watchmaker. The book is one of a kind (and the first edition) collecting a series of articles about world collectors of art pieces. So, what has this to do with bonsai? A little, because I contributed with an article and photos about Japanese bonsai collector Daizo Iwasaki, who passed away earlier this year.

I am really proud of being a contributor to this very special book, which stands out extraordinary in printing techniques and layout. I hope this honors’ the spirit of Daizo Iwasaki, and it places bonsai as art on a high level being included in this first edition of Collectors Island.

The book I received is No 411 out of the printed 1755 copies. No 412 goes to Naomi Iwasaki, Daizo Iwasakis widow.

I visited this Bonsai Garden as part of the ASPAC tour in November of 2011. I was told that the collection will be sold.

Morten,
Thank you for sharing this information. I watched your video featuring Sensei Daizo this morning and was in awe. I would love to have met him in person. At least his trees will tell his legacy!
Best,
Todd
