Japanese haiku has long been a much-loved form of poetry.
This book includes a selection of much-loved haiku focusing on the world of animals, birds and insects. These are Illustrated with beautiful images by Japan’s most famous artists.
The haiku form is a perfect way of capturing a moment of experience, and in this book, the experiences are extended by the illustrations.
Special use is made of the artist Utamaro’s exquisite Ehon mushi erabi (A Selection of Insects). The fact that this sophisticated artist chose insects for one of his most luxurious woodblock printed albums underlines the Japanese appreciation of even the most diminutive of animals in the haiku.
This beautiful book inspires readers to regard the animal kingdom with new eyes.
