Wabi Sabi For Artists Designers Poets & Philosophers
Back in stock soon.
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.
This is an updated version of the enduring classic that first introduced the concept of "imperfect beauty" to the West. Text, images, and book design seamlessly meld into a wabi-sabi-like experience.Paperback
