Tea Ceremony Manual is a complete, lavishly-illustrated guide to Tom Sachs’ culture of Tea, featuring the artist’s step-by-step instructions on how to perform a tea ceremony. Inspired by niche manuals such as The Tea Ceremony, by Sen’o Tanaka, The Fundamentals of Judo, by Yves Klein, and Tage Frid Teaches Woodworking, by Tage Frid, the book features a statement by the artist, an essay and haiku by Noguchi Museum Senior Curator Dakin Hart, a foreword by Noguchi Museum Director Jenny Dixon, and substantial back-matter, including a visual index of all of Sachs’ Tea-related works and an array of contextualizing appendices.
