-...a most excellent book: a lively, interesting and informative text illustrated with Ben Simmons's brilliant photography. [A] book very much worth adding to one's library.- --Shakkei, Japanese Garden Society UK

-Here is an instance in which one can certainly judge a book by its cover. The cover of Kyoto Gardens: Masterworks of the Japanese Gardener's Art contains eight vignetted color photographs that sumptuously display the rich combination of organic and man-made features that populate the serenely elegant gardens of Kyoto, Japan. One is immediately drawn to the breathtaking scenes displayed within, accompanied by text that is both descriptive and evocative, yet unobtrusive.- —Examiner.com

Judith Clancy has lived in Kyoto for more than 40 years, writing and teaching about Japanese culture. Her first publication, Naturescapes, was a tribute to her ikebana teacher, Tamura Suiko, who, through the art of flower arrangement, instilled a deep and subtle appreciation of Japanese aesthetics and character. Exploring Kyoto: On Foot in the Ancient Capital went beyond the usual guidebook. its 30 detailed walks through Kyoto reveal temples, shrines and folklore to visitors while taking them on a journey through centuries of Japan's traditional architecture and culture. Kyoto Machiya restaurant Guide relays the culinary delights within Kyoto's renovated townhouses, and in Kyoto: City of Zen, Clancy and Simmons introduce viewers to Japan's ancient capital. Clancy lives in a 120-year-old converted weaving studio in Nishijin, the weaving and dyeing district of Kyoto. Visit her website at kyotoworkshops.com.

He holds an MFA from the University of Florida. Some of his other book projects are Tokyo Megacity and Traditional Japanese Architecture: An Exploration of Elements and Forms, both published by Tuttle.
