Wabi Sabi For Artists, Designers, Poets, and Philosophers by Leonard Koren

Leonard Koren trained as an artist and architect. 

Originally published in 1994. 96 pp.

From the book:
“Wabi-sabi 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.”

From NYTimes, Sept 23 2010:
"At the heart of Japanese philosophy and wisdom lies a concept called ‘wabi-sabi’; a term which denotes a commitment to the everyday, the melancholic, the somewhat broken and the imperfect. It’s a term we need a lot more of in our lives."
