WABI SABI, by Mark Reibstein (ill. by Ed Young)(Little Brown 2008). "Wabi Sabi" is the Japanese concept of the beauty of impermanence. In WABI SABI, it's also the name of a cat who is driven to learn what his name means...
Told in haiku and sparse prose, and illustrated in collage, WABI SABI beautifully explores the concept of wabi sabi and is an altogether lovely and elegant picture book.
