The Zen Art Book: the Art of Enlightenment, Addiss, Stephen and John Daido Loori
1 Addiss, Stephen and John Daido Loori The Zen Art Book: the Art of Enlightenment
Boston Shambhala 2009 159030747X / 9781590307472 First edition, as stated Paperback New; Pictorial paperback; clean pages and illustrations; tight binding. 
When a Zen master puts brush to paper, the resulting image is an expression of the quality of his or her mind. It is thus a teaching, intended to compassionately stop us in our tracks and to compel us to consider ultimate truth. Here, forty masterpieces of painting and calligraphy by renowned masters are reproduced along with commentary that illuminates both the art and its teaching. The authors' essays provide an excellent introduction to both the aesthetic and didactic aspects of this art that can be profound, perplexing, serious, humorous, and breathtakingly beautiful, often all within the same simple piece. ; 103 pages
