A beautiful book, in every sense of the word.
Wabi-Sabi Further Thoughts
Point Reyes, California
Wabi-Wabi is the quintessential Japanese aesthetic. It is a beauty of things imperfect, impermanent and incomplete. It is a beauty of things modest and humble. It is a beauty of things unconventional.
About the author. Leonard Koren was trained as an architect but never built anything - except an eccentric Japanese tea house - because he found large, permanent objects too philosophically vexing to design. Instead he created WET: the magazine of gourmet bathing, one of the premier avant-garde magazines of the 1970s. Since then Koren has produced books about design ( Arranging Things: A Rhetoric of Object Placement) and aesthetics ( Which "Aesthetics" Do you mean: Ten Definitions).
