  • A fully illustrated edition of this classic work. The Book of Tea, written in English by Kakuzo Okakura in 1906, is widely recognised as one of the most important books written by Japanese authors in English. In the definitive guide to Japanese aesthetics, Okakura expresses the sublimity of a non-Christian culture at a time when Christianity was the dominant cultural tradition. At the same time, the book envisions a world in harmony with mutual understanding between East and West.
