Haiku Calendar, Wall, Pomegranate
In its spare, intense evocation of an emotion felt in a particular moment in time, haiku has much in common with Japanese painting, so many of whose images take their sharp immediacy from the nothingness that balances their composition. This calendar pairs classic haiku, some 400 years old and more, with prints and paintings of the past 300 years. Images include Fireflies Over a River and Descending Geese in Autumn, with haiku in ideograms, transliterated Japanese, and English. This 2006 Wall calendar was published by Pomegranate.
