Karesansui - (Japanese Rock Gardens)

Lovely book displaying Japanese rock gardens. The main elements of karesansui are rocks and gravel, with water bodies symbolized by gravel raked in patterns to suggest surface movement. Plants are less important, and in some cases, irrelevant. Karesansui are usually meant to be viewed from a single, seated position.

Although its commonly believed in the West that karesansui can calm the mind, they don't have this purpose in Japanese tradition, which treat them as aesthetic and symbolic compositions rather than meditative aids.

This publication would be a useful for those with an interest in Japanese gardens, and especially, minimal-plant or non-plant landscaping.
