Divine Gardens is a collection of essays and artwork celebrating the life and work of artist Mayumi Oda and her relationship with Buddhist practice in the Bay Area.
Full page reproductions of Oda’s work are paired with essays by San Francisco Zen Center and Green Gulch practitioners, including Richard Baker, Wendy Johnson, Edward Espe Brown, Linda Ruth Cutts, and Norman Fischer. The trade hardcover edition is accompanied by a new editioned etching titled Green Tara, created by the artist especially for this release. For libraries and collectors this set is offered in a handmade box, bound in striking Sierra Bluegreen cloth and foil stamped with Oda’s inimitable signature.
