From his vantage point as a garden designer and writer based in Kyoto, Marc Peter Keane examines the world around him and delivers astonishing insights through an array of narratives. How the names of gardens reveal their essential meaning. A new definition of what art is. What trees are really made of. The true meaning of the enigmatic torii gate found at Shinto shrines. Why we give flowers as gifts. The essential, underlying unity of the world.

Garden designer and writer Marc Peter Keane has made Kyoto his home for 20 years. Among his books are the essay collection The Art of Setting Stones, and the designer's idea-book Japanese Garden Notes. His gardens have been published many times, including in Architectural Digest, Landscape Architecture, and Martha Stewart magazine.
