Wabi Sabi

The Japanese Art of Impermanence
Andrew Juniper


Wabi sabi, the quintessential Japanese design aesthetic, is taken from the Japanese words wabi, which translates to less is more, and sabi, 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 especially the modest, the rustic, the imperfect and even the decayed.

With its focus on the delicate subtleties, objects, effects and environments of the natural world, wabi sabi promotes an alternative approach to the appreciation of both beauty and life itself. This book will help you understand the Zen philosophy of beauty in simplicity.
