“When the Japanese mend broken objects, they aggrandize the damage by filling the cracks with gold. They believe that when something’s suffered damage and has a history is becomes more beautiful.” BILLIE MOBAYED Wabi sabi is the Japanese way of thinking that beauty lies in imperfections and that the cycle of life to death in nature is beautiful every step of the way. Through this way of thought I created a booklet that incorporates the cycle of nature as well as the way the Japanese fill imperfections with gold to enhance the imperfect beauty.
