Post-Dated: The Schooling of an Irreverent Bonsai Monk was published in the fall of 2008. Much of it is from a journal I kept while an apprentice studying under Shinji Suzuki of Nagano, Japan. Part I of the book is an anecdotal account of the lunacy that apprenticing can be, and Part II are essays about bonsai and apprenticeship. You don’t need an interest in bonsai to enjoy this book, as it is very much a travelogue in spirit and content.
Post-Dated was serialized in the German language bonsai magazine Bonsai Art in 2010. There are also Portuguese and Spanish book versions in the works.
Post-Dated won a Gold Medal in the 2009 PubWest Book Design Awards.
