The traditional seventeen-syllable haiku always contains an evocative reference to a season and a distinct pause or interruption. Presented here are twelve haiku rendered in Japanese calligraphy, Romaji transliteration, and English translation. Each is paired with a shin hanga woodcut. With their depth and delicacy, wide range of subtle hues, and time-honored focus on beauties, landscapes, birds, and flowers, such prints have long been treasured in both East and West.
Printed with soy-based inks on FSC® certified paper, the paper used in this calendar has been certified by the Forest Stewardship Council® and manufactured by an FSC certified printer. FSC certification promotes responsible forest management by ensuring that forestry practices are environmentally responsible, socially equitable, and economically viable.
