The Zen Drawings of Stan White By Donnalynn Chase


in Shop here


This is the first collection of Stan White's ink drawings to ever be published. The drawings chosen by the editor, Donnalynn Chase, capture the essence of Soto Zen practice. Not only are his sumi-e "cartoons" skillfully composed, they are insightful tidbits of the early days of Zen in America. The forty-two black and white drawings by Stan White contained in this book span from 1978 to 2008 and depict numerous aspects of practice. Kobun Chino Otogawa Roshi, White's teacher, helped to establish the majority of the temples reflected in the drawings . Whether or not you are a Zen student, chances are that you will enjoy the candor and spirit of Stan White's Zen drawings.
