wasabi menu redesign (hand bound) :





this menu design was based on the following principles:

Wabi-sabi represents a comprehensive Japanese world view or aethetic centered on the acceptance of transience. The phrase comes from the two words wabi and sabi. The aesthetic is sometimes described as one of beauty that is "imperfect, impermanent, and incomplete".

Characteristics of the wabi-sabi aesthetic include asymmetry, asperity, simplicity, modesty, intimacy, and the suggestion of natural processes.
