First, I would like to express my appreciation to Jennifer
Lantagne at Tuttle Publishing for giving me this special
opportunity.
 I would also like to extend my warmest thanks to the
people who helped me complete this project, especially:
Photographer Erich Schrempp, of Schrempp Studio, who took
the wonderful photos featured here; Anjeli Flowers, 7643 W.
Belmont, Elmwood Park, IL 708-452-9004; and Edward Campbell,
for his assistance with writing in English and revising my
manuscript.
 -Keiko Kubo
A project like Keiko's Ikebana requires that the composition
and lighting be approached as simply and subtly as possible,
allowing the arrangements to stand on the page without
distraction. Light is a tool that is most powerful when it's
wielded with the gentlest touch. You can't improve on a
flower, but you can wrap it in light in such a way that it
becomes almost luminous. That's what I set out to do in
Keiko's Ikebana.
 -Erich Schrempp
