On Monday 2nd March, 2015, the third book from Harry Harrington and Bonsai4me "Bonsai Basics: The Foundations of Bonsai" went to print in Zagreb, Croatia. After 15 years of writing and development of the text itself, a year of preparation and laying out the book design and many 100's of man-hours of work, the book finally became a reality.

Here follows a few images from the momentous day itself, taken at Printera Grupa by the man behind much of the publishing side of the project, editor Ninoslav Pirš of Tresh Design.
