A classic by a renowned Dutch artist that offers a way to rediscover the world and experience Zen through seeing and drawing. Drawn and handwritten by the author.
Seeing/Drawing is spiritual discipline, a "Zen method" admirably suited to the active temperament, and a way of contemplation by which all things are made new, by which the world is freshly experienced at each moment.
