Description:Used-Very Good. Sabi (beauty in age and patina; venerable) and...Used-Very Good. Sabi (beauty in age and patina; venerable) and wabi (solitary; less is better; the fresh and new) are just two of the Japanese design principles lavishly illustrated through text and photographs in Wabi Sabi. Lennox Tierney explores the Zen influence on Japanese design, drawing upon anecdotes from his own discoveries as a young gaijin (foreigner). He leads the reader on a journey through geisha houses, stone gardens, Japanese inns, and one-plant gardens, ending with the quintessential experience--a tea ceremony. With elegant simplicity and the tranquillity of water flowing over a sounding stone, Wabi Sabi bridges the gap between western and eastern aesthetics, making it possible to savor the timeless elements of Japanese design again and again.
