Wabi-Sabi for the Artists, Designers & Poets

An updated version of the classic volume on the beauty of things, this beautiful book embraces imperfection, impermanence, and incompleteness. It's a slim volume and a short read but is rich in the history of the aesthetics of tea ceremony and Japanese culture and design. In it, you'll find beauty described as “a dynamic event that occurs between you and something else” and it embraces the damaged, murky, and fading. The act of reading this book is akin to meditation.
