About this deal

However, this book is a mishmash of autobiography and tips for a minimalist life and unfortunately, I didn’t find the autobiographical parts particularly stimulating. Obviously, the author felt he could still lead an enriched life if he rid himself almost entirely of his possessions.

The majority of the book explains the standard why minimalism is good for you and how to declutter your house. Featuring more than a hundred rare historical sources, On Minimalism curates this history anew, documenting one of the most important musical movements of our time. K. Coleman, this simple-living trio helps millions of people eliminate clutter and live meaningfully with less. Like: oh, you know, wasn’t it great when puppet theater was only lit by candles; or, back in the day, all women were skeletal and that was beautiful. The book also explores the tiny house movement and how to be a minimalist by effective steps such as decluttering your house.

As for emotional stuff, you need to first get it into your head that you’re not hurting your stuff’s feelings, nor erasing those memories. He said that their work had “minimal art content,” because these artists were adopting industrial materials, making objects that didn’t look like art.

We make these rooms more effective not by packing them with all the tools and decorations marketed for them but by relieving them of their burden of excess possessions. William Robin is Associate Professor of Musicology at the University of Maryland School of Music, author of Industry: Bang on a Can and New Music in the Marketplace, and a contributor to the New York Times.If reducing clutter, creating more time and raising more aware children are your goals, this book is not to be missed. So, Judd was one of a group of artists who was practicing this genre of art in the 1960s in Manhattan. However, if I could cut this book in half, I would, as I personally only found the first half or so necessary.

A wild collection of documents formed around a more dimensional and pleasingly meandering conception of 'minimalism' than we'd been told about. If you’re feeling overwhelmed by the clutter in your life and yearning for more peace and freedom, “Minimalism for Catholics” is the perfect read for you. I don’t remember 2018 that well but I believe that we were more evolved in the eco and decluttering world by then.You give a very striking statement in the opening section of your book: there are 300,000 household possessions in the average American home. This is all well and good, it simply wasn’t what I was expecting, nor the kind of book I was looking for. As I’m sure you’ve realised by now, my biggest complaint about these kinds of books is the repetition and superfluous passages so I was thrilled to hear this! This approach is accessible and manageable for wannabe minimalists like myself, who still have to contend with four-season clothing and energetic children with many accoutrements. I was really looking forward to reading this minimalist book as I’d heard a lot of good things about the works by this duo.
