Wabi Inspiration

Habitually Chic recently mentioned the new books Wabi Inspiration by Alex Vervoordt that is to be released in of February 2011. Should be a visual treat, but does it hold true to the concept of being wabi?

"Wabi-sabi nurtures all that is authentic by acknowledging three simple realities: nothing lasts, nothing is finished, and nothing is perfect." (from Wikipedia)

"A wabi person epitomizes Zen, which is to say, he or she is content with very little; free from greed, indolence, and anger; and understands the wisdom of rocks and grasshoppers." (from noble harbor)
