Why We Love It!

Haiku Art and Poetry Set 20 Japanese Cards comprises 20 Japanese notecards with soft white envelopes in a highly decorative gift box. Printed on high-quality 250 gsm card stock in full colour on recycled paper with soy based ink and left blank for your own special message. The purest of poems, a haiku contains in its 17 syllables a seasonal allusion as well as a distinct pause or shift. Cherry blossoms and swallows mean spring; red maple leaves and deer convey autumn. Nature and its ephemeral beauty, this is haiku!

Japanese woodblock artists have often drawn their water from the same wells of creativity used by haiku poets. A pleasure boat on a moonlit lake, a dozing bird beside a turning leaf, it should surprise no one that Basho, greatest of haiku poets, was an accomplished painter. Paired here are haikus old and new, with stunning Japanese prints from the mid-19th and mid-20th centuries. The Haiku Art and Poetry Set 20 Japanese Cards contains five each of the following stylish notecards;

  • Water Lilies c. 1930s, by Nishimura Hodo
  • Blue Birds at Night, early 20th century, by Watanabe Seitei
  • Monkey Bridge in Kai Province, by Ando Hiroshige
  • Spring Rain at Matsushima, by Tsuchiya Koitsu

Cards: 17cm x 12cm / 7 x 5 inches Box: 19cm x 13.5cm x 4cm / 7.5 x 5.25 x 1.5 inches
