Margaret Preininger published a book titled Japanese flower arrangement for modern homes on December 1, 1935. At that time she was the chairman of Cultural Arts at Los Angeles Junior College. According to the review in Kirkus Reviews, the 35 pages of text explain the four important Japanese Schools and the adaptations of their principles to American flowers and settings; the book includes 52 large reproductions of arrangements and 100 line drawings showing method of procedure; and chapters on vases, holders, flower selection, color, seasons, background and table settings
