The Contemplative Silence of Masao Yamamoto

"When I look back upon my path, I realize that the one consistent motif in my work is my obsession for small things," photographer Masao Yamamoto writes. "I feel joy when I discover seemingly insignificant things that may be easily overlooked. I am interested in those awkward feelings—such as when you miss a button hole or are stalled and lost in a disorienting fog. I prefer whispering my messages in a soft voice instead of speaking them out loud. My messages may be so soft as to be mistaken for illusions." Linenbound with tipped on cover and beautifully printed on thick, creamy paper with spot varnish, Small Things in Silence is one of the quietest, most contemplative books on our list. Back in stock at last, it is the perfect companion on this enveloping snow day.
