Blending magical photography with the spiritual wisdom of the Far East with a new page for every day of the year

Overview

This yearbook from husband-and-wife duo Danielle and Olivier Föllmi reveals the spiritual wisdom of the Far East. Each of Olivier's photographs is accompanied by the thoughts of a great master, including Confucius, Lao-tzu, Dogen Zenji, Chuang-tzu, Hong Zicheng and the Buddha. Their words have guided generation after generation for thousands of years, and they continue in this volume to enrich our views and lives with thoughts on nature, self-awareness, family and society.

The photographs take us to captivating temples in Thailand, the lavishly mystic nature of Cambodia, mist-enshrouded landscapes in Myanmar, bamboo forests in Vietnam, rice paddies in China and Zen gardens in Japan. The book as a whole teaches us, one day at a time, the wisdom of the East.
