Required Reading

Well, kind of.

"The Road Through Miyama" by Leila Philip. The Memoirs of a young woman's year in a tiny rural village in Japan as an apprentice to a master potter.

"Everyday Aesthetics", by my wonderful professor, Yuriko Saito. An analysis of our everyday interactions with nature, objects, and the material world.

"Wabi-Sabi: For Artists, Designers, Poets & Philosophers", by Leonard Koren. The preeminent book on the Wabi Sabi aesthetic tradition and world view. At least the best one I've found.

"Japanese for Busy People". I have to learn Japanese.
