Publisher Comments:

Wabi sabi, the quintessential Japanese design aesthetic, is quickly gaining popularity around the world, as evidenced by recent articles in andlt;iandgt;Timeandlt;/iandgt;, andlt;Iandgt;The Chicago Tribuneandlt;/iandgt; and andlt;Iandgt;Kyoto Journalandlt;/iandgt;. Taken from the Japanese words andlt;iandgt;wabiandlt;/iandgt;, which translates to less is more, and andlt;iandgt;sabiandlt;/iandgt;, which means attentive melancholy, wabi sabi refers to an awareness of the transient nature of earthly things and a corresponding pleasure in the things that bear the mark of this impermanence. As a design style, wabi sabi helps us to appreciate the simple beauty in imperfection--of a chipped vase or a rainy day, for example.

Book News Annotation:

Descriptions of wabi sabi—the ancient Japanese aesthetic that finds simple beauty in the impermanence of a chipped vase, or a quiet rainy day—are usually found couched in poetry by Japanese philosophers. This book attempts a more practical definition of what some have called "the new feng shui," examining wabi sabi's culture, art, design, and history stemming from its roots in the cha-no-yu (the tea ceremony) in Fifteenth-Century Japan. Juniper (who runs the Wabi-Sabi Art gallery in the UK) includes design tips to help with readers' own decorating projects.
