This review is from: Wabi Sabi: The Japanese Art of Impermanence (Paperback)
If you prefer quill pens to ballpoints, wooden boats to plastic and antiques to Ikea, Wabi Sabi is for you.
The book covers wabi sabi's origin in Japan as the aesthetic of Zen, but it can be equally applicable in the West- the patina of old furniture and the simplicity of English watercolours have a lot in common with zen gardens and tea ceremonies.
This is a practical book, too, with suggestions on how to apply wabi sabi principles to your own environment.
My only criticism is that the illustrations deserve better reproduction, but that would put the price up, I guess.
