You can now buy the “Bonsai Exhibit Book 2010” from our last show. Michael did a great job on the book. The photography was great. With just over a hundred pages of quality bonsai, this is a book worth having.

Of all the show books out there, this one has one added value. With every bonsai there is also information about the pot that was used with each bonsai. That makes this book also a pot-study book.
My favorite pot is on page 37. First of all, the bonsai is ancient. It is a variety not often seen: “Mino Yatsubusa” trident maple (these refuse to ramify). But more importantly, the glaze on the pot matches the flaky bark of the bonsai well. It has my vote for best matching pot and tree.
