In Training – Final Push

A California Juniper bonsai (in training since 1985) at the National Bonsai and Penjing Museum in Washington, DC.

Stephen Voss is a photographer based in Washington, DC and has been photographing bonsai for the past year at the National Bonsai Museum & Penjing Museum in DC.

He wants to make a book of the photographs and I could really use your help. He is nearly there and just needs a final push to reach his target.

You can see more about the project here:

A Toringo Crab Apple bonsai (in training since 1905) at the National Bonsai and Penjing Museum in Washington, DC.

If you find the project interesting, he’d love to have your support.

He’d also very much appreciate if you would share this within your bonsai community if you think it would be of interest.

Mr Warren’s New Book

Peter Warren’s new book has hit the shelves of book stores, well, probably more accessible via Amazon’s virtual book store, but you get my meaning.

Mr Snart of Willowbog fame has displayed his copy nicely in a Tokonoma. Did he write any words of wisdom on the inside cover Peter? 😉
