Format: Hardcover
I received this book as a gift (I am in my 30s), and I love it. The beauty of it's austere poetry and story line is well accompanied by simply lovely illustrations. It is now my favorite book. Suitable for all ages.

A tour de force of exquisite illustration. A very unique book about an important subject. Ed Young is one of the best illustrators ever. The collages are mind boggling in their sensitive use of natural materials. A delightful work of art all around.

Of all the hundreds of books I own, this is my favourite by far. Everything about it is so right. I find it a happy book, even just looking at its cover. There is so much variety in patterns, the colors are relaxing - it's a comforting book. As a collage artist, I have vague idea of what wabi sabi is, but I am no longer searching for an answer. The book says it all. I hope no one ever wants to borrow it - I cannot part with it ever. Marie Lyon

I purchased this book for my little grandson and he loved it! Especially the textured features that he could touch.
