Thought provoking and easily understood presentation of wabi-sabi
on 6 March 2016
Koren's clarity and thorough discussion of all aspects of wabi-sabi is hugely useful to anyone who doesn't have a Japanese cultural background. I really liked the way he explained the historical marketing incentive for keeping wabi-sabi an inscrutable concept. He sees wabi-sabi as an endangered species even within Japan and the whole book makes a good case for adoption of it's principles by non-Japanese. There are some great pictures too!
