Recently I bought two books about potager.

One book is a Japanese translation of a French book 'Le Carnet potager' written by Catherine Delvaux.  The original book was published in 2012, and its translation version was published in 2014.  In this book, French style organic kitchen gardening is introduced with beautiful illustrations and many pockets filled with information.  It looks like a pop-up book and it's a fun to turn over the pages.

The other book is a Japanese book 'Floral potager' which was written by Mitsue Namba and published in 2013.  She is a painter, designer and gardener.  She introduced a new style of kitchen gardening to Japan.  She plant flowers and herbs with vegs.  Her style shares with Geoff Hamilton, and I am very interested.  The beautiful photos were taken by a professional photographer Hideki Yokota for four years.
