Everyday aesthetics

Yuriko Saito (Author)
This ground-breaking book brings to life a neglected topic: our everyday aesthetic interactions with the world around us and the objects in it. Yuriko Saito shows how exploring everyday aesthetics can enrich the content of our aesthetic discourse, and reveals its influence on the state of the world and our quality of life.
