Description:
The Book of Tea by Okakura Kakuzo was originally published in 1906 with the intention of being read aloud in the famous salon of Isabella Stewart Gardner, Boston's most notorious socialite. Addressed to a western audience, the extended essay links the role of chadō or teaism to the importance of simplicity in Japanese culture and aesthetics. In this hardcover slipcase edition, pages' warm hue is reminiscent of the color of tea, gentle on the eyes and a beauty to behold.
