Cha-No-Yu: The Japanese Tea Ceremony
The Japanese tea ceremony, or cha-no-yu, is one of the last vestiges of an older, gentler era. Today, it resonates as a metaphor for ancient Japanese society.
First published in 1933, this classic remains the gold standard for books on the five-centuries-old tea ceremony. Illustrated with traditional drawings of furniture and utensils, tearoom architecture, garden design, floor and ground plans, and beautiful black and white photographs of famous tea bowls, teahouses, and gardens, Cha-No-Yu will enlighten the reader to the intimate aspects of ancient Japanese philosophy, history, and culture.
