A must for anyone interested in Zen and arts.
I have been waiting a long time for a book like this. My interest in Zen and its relation with art began many years ago, and since then I bought a lot of books about the theme. But this one is quite different. It has the depth that any serious investigator of japanese culture or zen art's lover is searching in a book.
Two things happen to be the most fascinating to me: the quality of the illustrations (superb), and the feelings transmited by the author about this real masters (not only zen masters, but life masters as well). The work of Audrey Yoshiko Seo will be in a short time recognized as a book for reference for students of oriental art, and a book capable of bringing a touch of calm by contemplating the excellent plates showed. The text is profound and sensitive. The lives of this contemporary masters and the facts that made their inspiration flow, are descripted with clarity and passion. This book moves me at a point that makes me feel really close to the heart of these masters of life. I will be waiting for another work of the author. Congratulations.
