By Leonard Koren.
Wabi-Sabi is the quintessential aesthetic of the Japanese art. This gorgeous book describe what is Wabi-Sabi in a Wabi-Sabi format and content. In less than 80 pages, many filled with beautiful photographs, describe the metaphysical, spiritual, state-of-mind, moral and material qualities that create Wabi-Sabi.
The Wabi-Sabi quality can be discovered everywhere, although demands careful attention to find it. For us, quite far from the Japanese mind, Wabi-Sabi explains the beauty we feel and see on many things that are nevertheless overlooked and unappreciated. The tension between the Wabi-Sabi aesthetic and our concious western-modernist aesthetic might be extremely interesting to explore.
