This fabulous catalog presents an overview of the arts both selected and created in Japan in the practice of chanoyu, which basically means 'tea ceremony'. It not only visualizes the spirit of the people who have been enmeshed in the history of these objects, but also sheds light on the enduring essence of Japanese aesthetics.
** “Books from Asia” includes exhibition catalogues of nearly every publisher and museum in Mainland China, as well as many from Japan, Taiwan, and Hong Kong.
