Glass no Naka No Daishizen is the complete works of Takashi Amano featuring over 185 aquascapes. Most of the aquascapes are classics but the new book by the godfather of modern aquarium aquascaping also features some of the master’s newest works, many of which have never been seen before or published. With stunning photography and breathtaking illustrations, Amano’s new book is a work of inspiration in several freshwater planted aquascaping style but mostly the Nature Aquarium style which he created. Such a powerful volume draws attention to the notable gap that is present in the reef keeping community. Reef aquascaping is a plus, not the focus and we are only now just beginning to see the reefing world catch on to more intensive aquascaping with the ReefScape competition that debuted at ReefStock. Although the book is in Japanese, the illustrations and details of these set ups are inscribed in a language we can all understand. The book is priced around $79 and it is currently available in the U.S. only from Aquarium Design Group.
