Description

Bamboo's increasing use in the West as a construction material (it grows fast, strong, and abundant, and harvesting sibling culms does not kill the mother rhizome) makes this book worth browsing. But browsers are likely to become grazers, drawn in by the large, color photos of simple, segmented poles fashioned into beautiful and ingenious domiciles, bridges, domestic accoutrements, furniture, and art objects. Once among photos, readers learn how to grow, harvest, and craft the graceful grass. The book's culmination is a sourcebook providing names of bamboo organizations, internet connections, workshops, designers, landscape architects, artists and craftspersons, custom builders, nurseries, furniture makers and retailers, etc. Annotation c.
