Wab-Sabi Wel­come (Ar­ti­san

Chic & Country - - News -

Books) is a de­light­ful lit­tle book that seeks to counter the mod­ern era of iPhones, per­fec­tion, pomp and paz­zazz. The au­thor looks at five places that have re­ally em­braced the wabi-sabi ideals - Ja­pan (of course), Den­mark, Cal­i­for­nia, France and Italy - and she shows how sim­ple plea­sures and spon­ta­neous mo­ments (to­gether with ba­sic recipes that re­flect those times) can be far more mem­o­rable than the end­less search for those lux­u­ri­ous and im­pec­ca­ble times that some­how never seem to sat­isfy.
