Re: [BKARTS] craft standards, poor books



If the study of Zen in art has prompted this interest I would recommend Zen in the Art of Archery by Eugen Herrigel.



One aspect of this book is that one does not control the flight of the arrow, 

but prepares oneself so that the arrow has a clear path.  



Leonard Seastone




PS; The book is not about shooting arrows.

I think much of it very clearly depends on intent and what kind of statement 
is being made. Eitherway, the craft needs to be first rate otherwise it will 
come across as shoddy - too much of that out there.
