Wabi Sabi - Further Thoughts
Wabi-sabi is the most conspicuous and characteristic feature of what we think of as traditional Japanese beauty. Wabi-sabi is a beauty of things imperfect, impermanent and incomplete - it could even be called the 'Zen of things' as it exemplifies many of Zen's core spiritual-philosophical tenets. Wabi-sabi, in its purest, most idealized form, is precisely about the delicate traces, the faint evidence, at the borders of nothingness.
Twenty-plus years after the initial publication of Wabi-Sabi: for Artists, Designers, Poets & Philosophers, this thoughtful text provides further insights into this seminal aesthetic paradigm. An important book for art and design theorists, and other creators.22cm x 14cm
