Bash' is without doubt a master of this very particular poetic form and style. If you are familiar with Japanese poetry, (specifically Renga or Haiku) then you will very much appreciate this book and its pocket-sized nature.

+ I really adore the cover image, it looks even better in real life!

This book is very light an therefore perfect to carry around and read a haiku here and there on the underground, in a park or while waiting for someone. Not all haikus are easy to interpret, but they are all beautifully written by the master of haiku, Basho. An example? "Spring rain - under trees a crystal stream."
Phenomenal.

An excellent collection of Basho's haiku - Some of which are almost audiovisual, others you can nearly taste. Great for contemplating life on secluded sunkissed beaches and rainy Highland hillsides alike.

I have published poetry works including Haiku myself and have over the years drawn on images presented by Basho, he's a wonderful writer, almost contempary in his period if that's possable.

If you like Haiku you'll love this rendering of his works.
