Wabi Sabi, Hardback Book

Wabi Sabi Hardback

Illustrated by Ed Young

Hardback

Description

Wabi Sabi, a little cat in Kyoto, Japan, had never thought much about her name until friends visiting from another land asked her owner what it meant.

At last, the master says, "That's hard to explain." And that is all she says. This unsatisfying answer sets Wabi Sabi on a journey to uncover the meaning of her name, and on the way discovers what wabi sabi is: a Japanese philosophy of seeing beauty in simplicity, the ordinary, and imperfection. Using spare text and haiku, Mark Reibstein weaves an extraordinary story about finding real beauty in unexpected places.

Caldecott Medal-winning artist Ed Young complements the lyrical text with breathtaking collages.

Together, they illustrate the unique world view that is wabi sabi.

Wabi Sabi is a unique picture book that clearly explains a new way of seeing the world to readers.
